Ethics and economic progress by James M Buchanan( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Ethics and Economic Progress, Nobel Prize-winning economist James M. Buchanan argues that ethical or moral constraints on human behavior exert important economic effects. He considers the question, Why are we better off by our own reckoning, when we work harder, save more, and deal honestly in markets and in politics? This nontechnical book opens up the entire economics-ethics nexus for examination. Part 1 examines behaviors and standards that can be subsumed under the term "Puritan ethics." The work ethic and the saving ethic may not be fashionable today, but Buchanan asserts that many modern attitudes and habits relate to the decline in productivity growth in the economy. If we acknowledge that moral values are important to our economic well-being, it follows that we must all "pay the preacher," on strictly economic grounds. Part II extends the argument, examining the implications for ethical norms that describe the behavior of taxpayers or public program users and the economics of the work ethic as it applies to nonlabor resources. The last chapter, perhaps the most controversial, suggests that Adam Smith's distinction between productive and nonproductive labor, which has been almost universally dismissed by economists, may indeed have economic relevance. Chapters 1, 2, and 3 were presented in 1991 as the first lectures in the W R. Howell, Sr., Second Century Lecture Series at the University of Oklahoma
The reason of rules : constitutional political economy by Geoffrey Brennan( Book )

38 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Societies function on the basis of rules. These rules, rather like the rules of the road, coordinate the activities of individuals who have a variety of goals and purposes. Whether the rules work well or ill, and how they can be made to work better, is a matter of major concern. Appropriately interpreted, the working of social rules is also the central subject matter of modern political economy. This book is about rules - what they are, how they work, and how they can be properly analysed. The authors' objective is to understand the workings of alternative political institutions so that choices among such institutions (rules) can be more fully informed. Thus, broadly defined, the methodology of constitutional political economy is the subject matter of The Reason of Rules. The authors have examined how rules for political order work, how such rules might be chosen, and how normative criteria for such choices might be established

Politics by principle, not interest : toward nondiscriminatory democracy by James M Buchanan( Book )

29 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on the effects of applying a generality constraint on the political process. Under this requirement, majorities would be prohibited constitutionally from treating different persons and groups differently. The generality principle is familiar in application to law; legal systems incorporate the ideal that all persons are to be treated equally. In summary, this book extends the generality norm to politics. The primary argument here is centered on political efficiency, which is increased when governments are constrained to treat persons or groups generally rather than differentially. The political efficiency defense of the generality constraint is based on a public choice analysis of the implication of majoritarian discrimination
