Although most people agree that some form of government is necessary, it was merely an assumption that had never been analyzed from an economic point of view. This collection presents book-length treatment by public choice economists on the role of government, and extends the research program. Although most people agree that some form of government is necessary, until recently, it was merely an assumption that had never been analyzed from an economic point of view. This changed in the 1970s when economists at the Center for the Study of Public Choice engaged in a systematic exploration of the issue. This provocative collection, the first book-length treatment by public choice economists on the role of government, continues and extends the research program begun more than three decades ago.
