Description:

This unique supplement and workbookwith a companion CD, perforated pages, and an array of exercisesgives students the opportunity to master the application of budgeting concepts. While theory plays an important role in any budgeting course, students need the ability to translate theory into practice and to feel comfortable reading, analyzing, and creating budgets. Focusing on budgeting at all levels of government, as well as at non-profits, the authors improve students spreadsheet literacy while having them work with real budgeting data. Exercises and problems, class-tested and proven to work, cover a range of topics and skills such as historical analysis, forecasting, cost analysis, pension analysis, performance-based budgeting, debt structure and management, cash flow estimates and variance analysis, classifying and categorizing data, as well as memo writing and multi-year planning.

Lynne A. Weikart was associate professor at Baruch College School of Public Affairs, City University of New York, until her retirement. She is currently a practitioner in residence at James Madison University, where she teaches budgeting and financial management. Before her academic career, she held several high-level government positions, including budget director of the Division of Special Education in New York City (NYC) public schools and executive deputy commissioner of the New York State Division of Human Rights. For several years, she also served as the executive director of a nonprofit, City Project, a progressive fiscal think tank focused on reforming NYC's resource allocation patterns. Weikart's current research focuses on resource allocation in urban areas as well as on urban finance, and she has published many articles on these subjects. She is author of Follow the Money: Who Controls New York City Mayors? (2009) and the coauthor with Greg Chen of Budgeting and Financial Management for Nonprofits (2012). The latter was CQ Press. She won the Luther Gulick Award for Outstanding Academic from the New York Metropolitan Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration in 2001. nbsp;
