Basic Economic Principles

Part of the Wasser: Ökologie und Bewirtschaftung book series (WÖW)


The chapter 11 defines projects in a macro-economic perspective as deliberate alterations of resource allocations (reallocations). It explains how it comes that public sector projects exist in market economies and introduces a rational treatment of the heavily debated equity topic.
