  1. Humane Economics

    Humane Economics

    Edited by Jack High
    Don Lavoie’s published work encompasses a wide range of subjects – socialism, hermeneutics, information technology, and culture. The subjects appear unrelated, but a close examination of his research reveals an underlying unity of thought and an economics at sharp variance with the post World War II mainstream. The contributors to this volume explore the legacy of his scholarship and its implications for economics. Learn More

  2. The Elgar Companion to Public Economics

    The Elgar Companion to Public Economics

    Edited by Attiat F. Ott, Richard J. Cebula
    Attiat Ott and Richard Cebula have recognised the need to present, in an accessible and straightforward way, the voluminous literature in the public economics arena. Advances in econometric techniques and the spillover of knowledge from other disciplines made it difficult, not only for students but also for lecturers, to accurately find the information they need.

  3. Beyond Conventional Economics

    Beyond Conventional Economics

    Edited by Giuseppe Eusepi, Alan P. Hamlin
    Beyond Conventional Economics presents new original work from leading scholars on the interface between the individual and political and social institutions. The book offers a critique of the inadequacies of the conventional economic approach to politics and a state-of-the-art view of new paradigms challenging the dominant economic notion of the individual. A number of chapters also explore the limits of individually rational behaviour in political decision making – some by challenging the orthodox content of the idea of rationality, others by providing fresh views on the operation of political processes.

    Why I, Too, Am Not a Conservative

    James M. Buchanan

  5. Anarchy, State and Public Choice

    Anarchy, State and Public Choice

    Edited by Edward Stringham
    The book reprints the main articles from the 1972 volume Explorations in the Theory of Anarchy, and contains a response to each chapter, as well as new comments by Gordon Tullock, James Buchanan, Jeffrey Rogers Hummel and Peter Boettke. The younger economists are notably less pessimistic about markets and more pessimistic about government than their predecessors. Much of the new analysis suggests that private property rights and contracts can exist without government, and that even though problems exist, government does not seem to offer a solution. Might anarchy be the best choice after all? This provocative volume explores this issue in-depth and provides some interesting answers. Learn More

  6. Endogenous Time Preferences in Social Networks

    Endogenous Time Preferences in Social Networks

    Marianna A. Klochko, Peter C. Ordeshook
    Marianna Klochko and Peter Ordeshook address an under-studied issue from rational choice theory – the common assumption that individual time preferences are exogenous and fixed. They then present empirical evidence to suggest that this is not the case, exploring a computer simulation model that allows for the evolutionary change of time preferences. This is done, moreover, in the context of social networks that are themselves endogenously determined. Learn More

  7. Public Pensions and Immigration

    Public Pensions and Immigration

    Tim Krieger
    The rapid ageing of societies in many industrialized countries threatens the stability of unfunded public pension systems. An immigration policy that accepts young workers would appear to be a simple solution to the challenge, by increasing the number of contributors to the pension system. Tim Krieger uses public choice analysis to investigate whether a majority of voters would pursue an active immigration policy in order to stabilize its unfunded public pension system. Learn More

  9. The Origins of Law and Economics

    The Origins of Law and Economics

    Edited by Francesco Parisi, Charles K. Rowley
    This unique collection of largely unpublished papers brings together the founding fathers of law and economics to provide their own views on the origins and intellectual history of the field. Law and economics emerged as a separate field of scholarship during the early 1960s, fueled by two seminal papers, one by Ronald Coase and one by Guido Calabresi. The ideas generated by scholars researching in the field have deeply influenced the major disciplines of economics and the law. Learn More

  10. Public Goods, Redistribution and Rent Seeking

    Public Goods, Redistribution and Rent Seeking

    Gordon Tullock
    Gordon Tullock, eminent political economist and one of the founders of public choice, offers this new and fascinating look at how governments and externalities are linked. Economists frequently justify government as dealing with externalities, defined as benefits or costs that are generated as the result of an economic activity, but that do not accrue directly to those involved in the activity. In this original work, Gordon Tullock posits that government can also create externalities. In doing so, he looks at governmental activity that internalizes such externalities. Learn More

  11. Political Competition, Innovation and Growth in the History of Asian Civilizations

    Political Competition, Innovation and Growth in the History of Asian Civilizations

    Edited by Peter Bernholz, Roland Vaubel
    Do political decentralisation and inter state competition favour innovation and growth? There has long been a lively debate surrounding this question, going back to David Hume and Immanuel Kant. This book is a new attempt to test its veracity. The existing literature tends to assume that the beneficial effects of inter state competition have been confined to European history. By contrast, China, India and the Islamic Middle East are regarded as inherently imperial and overcentralised. However, these civilisations have not always been unified politically. In their history, there have been long spells of decentralised rule or inter state competition. The same is true for Japan. If the Hume–Kant hypothesis is correct, it should also apply to those periods. This volume analyses the qualitative and quantitative evidence. Learn More

  12. The Elgar Companion to the Economics of Property Rights

    The Elgar Companion to the Economics of Property Rights

    Edited by Enrico Colombatto
    Economics is a matter of choice and growth, of interaction and exchange among individuals. Because property rights define the rules of these interactions and the objects of exchange, it is vital to fully understand the institutions and implications of the various property-rights regimes. With over 20 original and specially commissioned chapters, this book takes the reader from the historical and moral foundations of the discipline to the frontiers of scholarly research in the field.

  15. Equality, Rights and the Autonomous Self

    Equality, Rights and the Autonomous Self

    Timothy P. Roth
    Modern liberalism asserts the transcendental, autonomous self’s ‘natural rights’ against others’ moralistic and political preferences, and regards the economist’s utilitarian social welfare theory as instrumental to the achievement of ‘social justice’. Timothy Roth argues that the liberal enterprise ignores Kant’s ‘two points of view’, confuses Kantian autonomy with moral and political license, mistakes utilitarian impersonality for impartiality, and takes no account of the indeterminacy of social welfare theory’s fundamental theoretical constructs.

    Autocratic, Democratic, and Optimal Government

    William A. Niskanen
    This book presents simple models of the major alternative types of political regimes, estimates of the parameters of these models, and quantitative estimates of the fiscal choices and economic outcomes of these regimes. William Niskanen provides valuable analysis of the effects of the voting rule, the progressivity of the tax structure, and the length of the fiscal horizon in democratic governments and interesting insights of the effects of alternative regimes on policies, such as war and immigration, that affect the number of people subject to the regime.

  18. Economic Welfare, International Business and Global Institutional Change

    Economic Welfare, International Business and Global Institutional Change

    Edited by Ram Mudambi, Pietro Maria Navarra, Giuseppe Sobbrio
    The distinguished authors in this volume address the fundamental causes for such heterogeneous international experiences, placing particular emphasis on the role of institutions. They demonstrate how the study of economic development is increasingly linked to the development of institutions, which allow for more complex exchanges to occur in markets and societies. Institutions can be understood as rules or constraints that channel individuals' actions in specific directions, and can be formal or informal depending on their genesis. The book highlights the connection between institutions and economic welfare by examining countries at different stages of development. Although the authors' study material effects, they also look at individual well-being which is more strongly influenced by the non-material products of institutions such as opportunity, freedom and relationships. They move on to highlight the role of institutions in global business, in terms of innovation, entrepreneurship and foreign direct investment. In the concluding chapters they focus on the actual process of transition from one institutional framework to another. Amongst other examples, they examine reforms to international financial institutions and constitutional adjustments in transition countries. Learn More

  20. The Economics of Budget Deficits

    The Economics of Budget Deficits

    Edited by Charles K. Rowley, William F. Shughart II, Robert D. Tollison
    The Economics of Budget Deficits provides a comprehensive overview of the scholarly literature exploring the causes and consequences of deficit spending and the public debt. Incorporating classical, Keynesian and public choice analyses of debt-financed public expenditures, the two volumes contain major theoretical and empirical contributions to the debate. They cover such critical fiscal policy issues as the history and measurement of budget deficits, the question of who bears the burden of the public debt, the use of deficits to solve problems of dynamic policy inconsistency and the relative effectiveness of fiscal rules and constitutional constraints as mechanisms for achieving budget balance. The editors provide an authoritative introduction to the two volumes and separate overviews of each of the seven parts. The Economics of Budget Deficits is an indispensable reference for all scholars and students interested in fiscal policy and for all policymakers. Learn More
