Further detail from the Stephen Harris 2009-10 syllabus below

The purposes of the course are (a) to provide the students with an understanding of the key elements of federal government budgeting: goal setting, planning and control processes; and (b) to provide an understanding of budgets as public policy and thus reflect compromises among competing interests and objectives. The course will achieve its purpose by using an interdisciplinary approach. The relevant issues will be examined from the perspective of the economics, politics, political economy and management literature. Students will become familiar with federal budgeting controversies; will gain an understanding of politics and the process of budget-making; and will see the budget as an important overarching framework for governance, and will be exposed to the size and composition of federal budgets.
