FinanzArchiv celebrates 140 years (in 2024)

On the occasion of its 140th birthday, FinanzArchiv published a special issue (FinanzArchiv / European Journal of Public Finance vol. 80 no. 1) and announced its new official name.

Cited from the editorial note:
"To celebrate the 140th birthday of the Journal, a special issue brings together a selection of public finance papers authored and co-authored by eminent scholars in the field, including Rick van der Ploeg, Robin Boadway, Katherine Cuff, Thomas Aronsson, Katarzyna Bilicka and Ottmar Edenhofer.
From 2024, the official name will be FinanzArchiv - European Journal of Public Finance. We believe that the new subtitle better reflects the Journal's long history, which is rooted in a European tradition of public finance, but also better reflects the high ambition of the Journal."

IIPF members are entitled to a substantially reduced subscription rate for FinanzArchiv - see IIPF membership.

Vito Tanzi writes about IIPF annual congresses

Professor Vito Tanzi, Honorary President of IIPF, published three books in which he reports on previous IIPF annual congresses.

Termites of the State: Why Complexity Leads to Inequality (Cambridge University Press, 2017) examines how the growth of the government's involvement in the economy has been accompanied by growing complexity which has facilitated, for some well connected or just lucky individuals, the getting of rents leading to growing inequality in the distribution of income. This book includes the most detailed "anatomy" of a public sector available in the literature.

In Russian Bears and Somali Sharks: Transition and Other Passages (New York, Jorge Pinot Books Inc., 2010) he examines seven economies that have undergone some kind of transition. The book comprises proceedings of the IIPF congresses in Italy (Taormina) 1979, Portugal 1995, and Russia 1999.

Peoples, Places and Policies: China, Japan and Southeast Asia (New York, Jorge Pinot Books Inc., 2008) describes two IIPF annual congresses, Korea 1992 and Kyoto 1997, as well as some events connected with them.
These books may contribute to the history of the IIPF and encourage IIPF members to relate similar experiences in future books.

Other titles recently published:

Monitoring the State or the Market: From Laissez Faire to Market Fundamentalism (Cambridge University Press, 2023), The Economics of Government (Oxford University Press, 2020), Advanced Introduction to Public Finance (Edward Elgar, 2020), The Ecology of Tax Systems Factors that Shape the Demand and Supply of Taxes (Edward Elgar, 2018), Government Versus Markets: The Changing Economic Role of the State (Cambridge University Press, 2011), Dollar, Euros and Debt. How we got into the Fiscal Crisis and how we get out of it (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) and Dal Miracolo Economico al Declino?
