|Title:||Local Government Failure in Australia?: An Empirical Analysis of New South Wales||Contributor(s):||Dollery, Brian Edward (author); Byrnes, Joel (author)||Publication Date:||2002||DOI:||10.1111/1467-8500.00284||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3245||Abstract:||The complexities of contemporary local governance in Australia and other advanced democracies provide social scientists with significant theoretical and empirical challenges. Drawing on recent developments, including public choice theory, economists have sought to develop taxonomic systems of government failure specifically tailored to local government circumstances. This paper seeks to extend the Dollery and Wallis (2001b) taxonomy of local government failure by invoking Olson’s (1965) concept of political entrepreneurship. The paper then attempts to determine the empirical validity of the augmented taxonomy by examining it in the context of NSW local government.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Public Administration, 61(3), p. 54-64||Publisher:||Australian Institute of Public Administration||Place of Publication:||Melbourne, Australia||ISSN:||0313-6647||Field of Research (FOR):||140213 Public Economics- Public Choice||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 98
