Landschap Overijssel wil de mogelijkheden in kaart brengen tot verplichte bekostiging van aanleg, herstel en/of behoud van landschappelijke elementen, zoals houtwallen. Deze bekostiging zou moeten geschieden op basis van het profijtbeginsel. Niet alleen gebruikers van het landschap, zoals recreanten, passanten, bewoners en agrariërs, maar ook inwon...
Article
In this contribution, we address the introduction of private property rights and market trades in the use of the radio frequency spectrum. We discuss the UK case being inspired by the ideas of Coase. We discuss how an appropriate design of property rights and a secondary market would look like and how the developments after the introduction of prop...
Article
There is a growing support for the view that the private sector is at least as efficient as the public sector in managing investment risks of large projects. Governments forget that it is the taxpayer who bears all the risks in a public finance scenario of investments. So, it seems unfounded that governments should neglect the cost of investment ri...

Privatisation and marketisation seem to be a global tendency which goes beyond education and research. Privatisation and marketisation have been introduced in sectors such as public transport, social welfare and security, health, and infrastr...
Chapter
The socialists’ deliberate organisation of society inspired Barone to formulate principles for solving the allocation problem in a ‘collectivist régime’ and to elaborate the Walrasian and Paretian mathematical approach in order “to determine in what manner the Ministry concerned with production ought to direct it” (Barone 1935, pp. 245–246). It was...
Chapter
The intermunicipal arrangement is one of the opportunities municipalities can use to redece their budget problems. Intermunicipal arrangements, privatizing activities, such as contracting out, and straightforward budget cuts were popular instruments used in response to the fiscal squeeze during the ‘eighties. It is conceivable that the establishmen...
Chapter
It is not easy to identify the essential differences between Neo-Classical and neoinstitutional economics. It has been stressed that the unboundedly rational actor is central to Neo-Classical theory, and that the satisficing behavior of agents who face positive information cost is characteristic of neoinstitutional economics. Bounded rationality an...
Article
During the 1980s, budgetary problems and the accompanying reorientation on the public sector role have initiated several measures to improve public productivity in the Netherlands.
