Read the free e-book version of Government Failure below. Available for a limited time only.
Politicians often cite “market failure” as justification for meddling with the economy, but a group of leading scholars show the shortcomings of this view. Government Failure explains the school of study known as “public choice,” which uses the tools of economics to understand and evaluate government activity. The book explains how government “cures” often cause more harm than good and provides an engaging overview of public choice. Government Failure heralds a new approach to the study of politics and public policy. This book enlightens readers with the basic concepts of public choice in an unusually accessible way to show the folly of excessive faith in the state.
