How Audit Courts Affect Political Discussion
Torgler, Benno & Schaltegger, Christoph A. (2007) How Audit Courts Affect Political Discussion. In Backhaus, Jurgen G. (Ed.) Fiscal Sociology: Public Auditing. Peter Lang Publishing, New York, pp. 107-119.
From the point of view of public finance research, this book is a little quaint. A typical court of audit judges only what is put before it. In these essays it is argued that the judge should search for alternative actions that could have been taken and change thereby the records presented. This is different in that traditional public finance talks about some unknown entity whose well being a benign president should implement. We are not particularly impressed with this model. Our way of reasoning is that we want to talk about alternatives.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
