Public Finance and Budgeting (PFB) is a section of the Western Social Science Association (WSSA) created to provide a friendly and scholarly environment for sharing research in the areas of public finance, public budgeting, and public financial management as they are broadly defined. Paper and panel proposals are welcome on all topics in public finance, financial management, budgeting, and public economics. The association also offers sections in public administration, economics, political science, urban studies, and many other social science disciplines.
Continuing a sectional tradition of journal symposia, papers that are accepted and presented will be eligible to be included in a symposium in the Municipal Finance Journal. The symposium will be peer-reviewed and the usual standards and topical considerations for publication in the Municipal Finance Journal apply.
The section also offers a Best Manuscript Award as well as a Runner-Up Award. Papers are self-nominated following the completion of the conference. The PFB section will recognize the winners at the WSSA’s Annual Meeting next year.

For students: Students affiliated with WSSA can win $500, a free one-year subscription to the Social Science Journal, and free conference registration at the conference in San Francisco, CA. Each winning paper will also receive one room/2 nights free lodging. Completed papers are generally due by mid-January. As soon as your proposal is accepted, please consider submitting your completed paper to this student paper competition.
