dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this paper is to conduct an inquiry into the growth of public sector share (i.e. public sector expenditure expressed as a percentage of GNP) in Ireland for the period 1953-77. This is done under a number of headings. First, the trends in the share of overall public sector expenditure and public sector expenditure by economic and functional category are examined in detail. Second, the trends in revenue are outlined and discussed. Third, the hypothesis that trends in "real" public sector share may have differed markedly from those for nominal public sector share is examined. Finally, the hypothesis that changes in the "visibility" of the tax system, coupled with changes in decision-making procedures, were important determinants of public sector share is assessed. The paper, therefore, examines trends in expenditure and revenue in detail and assesses the validity of what are considered in the literature to be the main hypotheses relating to the growth of public sector share arising from both a "producer" and "financial perspective"en
