The book includes, among other topics, a reasoned distinction between two fundamental types of voting power, the authors' discoveries on the paradoxes of voting power, and a novel analysis of decision rules that admit abstention.

  13. Not Just for the Money

    Not Just for the Money

    Bruno S. Frey
    In Not Just for the Money Professor Frey challenges traditional economic theory and argues that people do not act in expectation of monetary gain alone, nor do they work solely because they are paid. Furthermore, the author claims that higher monetary compensation as well as regulations crowd-out motivation in important circumstances. Offering higher pay may make people less committed to their work and may reduce their performance. They thus behave in exactly the opposite way the fundamental price-effect of economics predicts.

  17. TRADE PROTECTION IN THE UNITED STATES

    TRADE PROTECTION IN THE UNITED STATES

    Charles K. Rowley, Willem Thorbecke, Richard E. Wagner
    Trade Protection in the United States analyzes the history of US trade policy to explain why interest groups are able to foster protectionist policies despite the advantages which free trade offers consumers. The authors also explain why the principles of managed trade – as epitomized in the institution of the GATT – are inevitably subverted by protectionism. This important book concludes with a vigorous justification of unilateral free trade and makes a convincing case for protecting the freedom to trade through an amendment to the US constitution.

  20. BUREAUCRACY AND PUBLIC ECONOMICS

    BUREAUCRACY AND PUBLIC ECONOMICS

    William A. Niskanen
    Bureaucracy and Public Economics brings together in one volume the classic book and related articles which put forward the first formal economic theory of the behaviour of bureaucracies. William Niskanen Jr. has consistently argued that bureaucrats have personal objectives – that differ from those of both their political supervisors and the general public – which they further by use of their monopoly power. He develops his argument to contend that government budgets have become too large and should be curtailed. All of Professor Niskanen’s major contributions to this field have been brought together in this one volume including his pioneering article on ‘The Peculiar Economics of Bureaucracy’, the full text of the book ‘Bureaucracy and Representative Government’ and his recent reassessment of the larger body of scholarship on the economics of bureaucracy.
