A Brief History and Analysis of Budgeting as a Tool of Allocation.
Warner, David C.
This document consists of three sections: a summary of the development of government budgeting, a discussion of the concepts and applicability of performance budgeting, and a critique of the techniques and usefulness of PPBS with a detailed analysis of its economic assumptions. Appendixes show that an optimum solution to the problem of allocations between the public and private sector is virtually impossible. For some merit goods such as education, a partial use of the market system may be more productive. Funds for this research project were provided by an ESEA Title III grant. (Author)
