Public goods, redistribution and rent seeking by Gordon Tullock( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 394 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."--Jacket
