The twenty-two papers collected in this volume illustrate the itinerary of Henry Tulkens, an applied theorist, on the occasion of his retirement from teaching. The collection is structured in four parts:
I. Decentralized resource allocation processes for public and private goods
II. Environment, public goods and externalities
III. Efficiency analysis
IV. Fiscal competition and optimality
The four pictures above evoke a key concept, method or model used in each of these four parts:
> MDP-type processes to determine feasible paths to efficiency and coalitional stability.
> CLIMNEG World Simulation model to explore alternative environmental scenarios for the planet.
> Free Disposal Hull efficiency analysis to drop convexity and help deal with outliers.
> Non Cooperative Fiscal Equilbria to characterize the outcomes of fiscal competition
