Public Sector Efficiency - Applications to Local Governments in Germany


 

Alexander Kalb applies advanced and novel econometric as well as linear programming techniques to investigate the sources of potential inefficiencies for local governments in Germany. He uncovers socio-economic, fiscal as well as political sources of inefficiencies. Finally, he makes recommendations how these inefficiencies in the provision of public goods and services can be reduced in the future.

Dr. Alexander Kalb completed his doctoral thesis under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Lars P. Feld at the Chair of Public Economics at Heidelberg University. He is a researcher at the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), Mannheim.
