The Transfer Society: Economic Expenditures on Transfer Activity

Front Cover
"Through an ambitious cataloguing of different categories of expenditures on forced transfers and research into the amounts expended on each one, Laband and McClintock present a more complete picture of the effects of forced transfers than one would get from merely considering the aggregates of federal and state budgets or estimates of the amounts of wealth that change hands through the various forms of "freelance" redistribution, such as insurance fraud, theft, or extortion." "This book both poses problems and offers solutions to important issues in economics and political science."--Jacket.
