This Article introduces the concept of “quasi-public spending” to describe [a] type of policy, whereby public provision of goods and services is effected not through direct, tax-funded government programs, as is common in continental Europe, but rather through a mixture of individuals’ direct expenditures driven by government subsidies and mandates, smaller scale taxes to make distributional adjustments, and heavy public regulation of the private market. Thus, rather than pay a tax to the government in exchange for the good or service, individuals are encouraged (or required) to purchase the good or service directly, but with government subsidies (raised from lower taxes) to address distributional issues, and regulations to ensure that the good or service is provided consistent with public programmatic goals.
