This is the second edition of a book that was, in 2008, the first to bring together the microeconomic insights on the functioning of non-profit organisations, complementing the wide range of books on the management of non-profit organisations by focusing instead on both theoretical and empirical work.
First, definitions of non-profit organisations are considered, after which the economic rationale behind their existence is examined, followed by a study of the demand for them and its implications for their functioning. The final chapters look at the economic idiosyncrasies of non-profit organisations management, focusing on the fields of strategic management, marketing, accounting and finance.
This book will be perfect for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates engaged in the study of non-profit organisations and managerial economics.
