Alternative Budgets: Budgeting as if People Mattered.

by John Loxley - £16.95  Fernwood Publishing (2003)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781552661055 | ISBN 10: 1552661059

Alternative budgets are becoming an increasingly popular form of poliical action both in Canada and internationally. They demonstrate that there really are more enlightened alternatives which are, at the same time, fiscally responsible. They show that budgets can be pro-poor, pro-women and pro-environment. They can also represent an important form of domocratic activity as ordinary people are encouraged to participate and contribute. This book outlines the basics of budgeting and examines the technical and political content of budgets and how balanced-budget legislation imposes fiscal constraints on governments. It explores the origins of alternative budgets in Canada and examines the experience at federal, provincial and civic levels. It analyzes the objectives of alternative budgets in Canada and how they are circulated. It also draws on international experience of women's budgets and the Porto Alegre democratic budgeting.
