Abstract




This paper analyses the efficiency implications of property value maximization. Communities are open,
so that utilities are parametric to housing producers and the local government. Each local government
chooses its public good output to maximize aggregate property value in the community, ignoring
feedback effects on the composition of the housing stock. It is shown that this type of government
behavior generates an equilibrium in which all communities are internally Pareto-efficient.


The contracting of public services has been an integral part of public managers' work for a long time,
and it is here to stay. This essay sums up current research on the topic for busy practitioners and
scholars. Where are we today with respect to the problems and pitfalls of contracting out, from
balancing equity with efficiency to confronting the frequent problem of imperfect markets?




This study investigated differences in general values, work values and organizational commitment
among 549 private sector, public sector, and parapublic sector knowledge workers. No differences in
general values were observed across sectors, although five significant work value differences were
revealed: parapublic employees value work that contributes to society more than public servants, who
value it more than private sector employees; parapublic employees value opportunities for
advancement less than both public and private sector employees; public servants value intellectually
stimulating and challenging work more than parapublic employees; and private sector employees
value prestigious work more than public servants. Private sector employees displayed greater
organizational commitment than the employees in the other two sectors. Overall, the findings suggest
only limited value differences among employees of the various sectors. The finding of some work
value differences between employees in the public and parapublic sectors suggests that these two
groups merit separate consideration in comparative studies such as this one.
