"Gordon Tullock, eminent political economist and one of the founders of public choice, offers this new 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."--BOOK JACKET

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most histories of US foreign policy and development concentrate either on economic growth or on relations with the major powers outside the continental United States.

Covering Christopher Columbus' famous voyage and US colonial policy up to Worl

Economics of income redistribution by Gordon Tullock( Book )
28 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While income redistribution is one of the most important functions of modern governments, the world has changed greatly since this first edition of Economics of Income Redistribution was published in 1983. Pension systems and medical programs are in a state of crisis in many parts of the world and the general political mood is shifting away from income redistribution. Economics of Income Redistribution (2nd edition) brings this work up to date by discussing the economic and political aspects of income redistribution. It examines the classical moral objective of redistribution to assist the poor, as well as income transfer for pensions, education and intra-family gift giving

The new world of economics a remake of a classic economics book for new generations of economics students by Richard B McKenzie( )
15 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The New World of Economics, 6th edition, by Richard McKenzie and Gordon Tullock, represents a revival of a classic text that, when it was first published, changed substantially the way economics would be taught at the introductory and advanced levels of economics for all time. In a very real sense, many contemporary general-audience economics books that seek to apply the "economic way of thinking" to an unbounded array of social issues have grown out of the disciplinary tradition established by earlier editions of The New World of Economics. This new edition of The New World will expose new generations of economics students to how McKenzie and Tullock have applied in a lucid manner a relatively small number of economic concepts and principles to a cluster of topics that have been in the book from its first release and to a larger number of topics that are new to this edition, with the focus of the new topics on showing students how economic thinking can be applied to business decision making. This edition continues the book's tradition of taking contrarian stances on important economic issues. Economics professors have long reported that The New World is a rare book in that students will read it without being required to do so
