Politics of the national purse

Public budgeting as public policy in Zimbabwe

Jonathan N. Moyo


The book is out of print.


The Politics of the National Purse is presently the only available study of public budgeting in Zimbabwe, which is both comprehensive and detailed from a public policy point of view. The book provides thought provoking suggestions for improving the budgetary process in Zimbabwe. This is done against the background of a critical review of public budgeting in ‘developed’ and ‘developing’ countries, offering the reader a basis for assessing the Zimbabwean experience within a broader context
