I. Analyze the role of the government in the budget process
II. Analyze the role of the government in correcting externalities and other market failures
III. Analyze the use of taxpayer resources to correct externalities and other market failures
The assignment is to analyze, not describe:
Descriptive writing merely communicates the “what”– in other words, it describes a situation as it is. Plain and simple. It does not consider anything beyond that. Contrasted to this, analysis communicates the “so what?” – in other words, the significance, and implications of a given situation. Ideally, this impact discussion should link to the research questions or broader research purpose.
Externalities are a consequence of a governmental activity that affect other parties without this being reflected in the cost of the goods or services involved. Externalities by nature often are environmental. Some examples of negative externalities include:
· Air pollution
· Water pollution
· Farm animal production
· Passive smoking.
· Traffic congestion
· Noise pollution
Market failure is an inefficient allocation of resources. Government failure occurs when government intervention results in a more inefficient and wasteful allocation of resources.
