On the one hand, public finance studies have been directed towards identifying the principal causes of public sector growth.

Milton Friedman: "I Think the Austrian Business-Cycle Theory Has Done the World a Great Deal of Harm" This is from a 1998 interview with Milton Friedman: EPSTEIN You were acquainted with the Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek and also are familiar with the work of Ludwig von Mises and his American disciple, Murray Rothbard.
