Most widely held works by Locke Institute
Public goods, redistribution and rent seeking by Gordon Tullock( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book presents simple models of the major alternative types of political regimes, estimates of the parameters of these models, and quantitative estimates of the fiscal choices and economic outcomes of these regimes." "William Niskanen provides analysis of the effects of the voting rule, the progressivity of the tax structure, and the length of the fiscal horizon in democratic governments and interesting insights of the effects of alternative regimes on policies, such as war and immigration, that affect the number of people subject to the regime." "Economists and political scientists who specialize in public finance, public choice, and the comparative analysis of political regimes will find much to engage them in this book."--BOOK JACKET

Economic welfare, international business, and global institutional change ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Global economic progress in the 20th century, while generally encouraging, was neither continuous nor uniform. With the exception of some Asian nations, countries that were more developed at the beginning of the 20th century still rank amongst the wealthiest nations, while countries that were poorer, still lag behind. The distinguished authors in this volume address the fundamental causes for such heterogeneous international experiences, placing particular emphasis on the role of institutions

The European Monetary Union in a public choice perspective by Jennifer C Martin-Das( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The future of European Monetary Union (EMU) stands as one of the most important economic issues of the era. The author argues that in the event of macroeconomic shocks, rather than acting as a cohesive force, EMU could give rise to disunity. As EMU is not an optimal currency area, asymmetric shocks affecting each country differently could be critical to its future."
