Probing Leviathan: An Investigation of Government in the Economy

Printer-friendly version

Authority over economic decisions is rapidly being transferred from the private to the public sector.

The contributors to this book provide a wide range of professional opinion and empirical findings about the decline of the market sector as an allocator of resources and the prospects for the mixed economy. The authors address several important questions including: why government grows, why there is dissatisfaction with expansion of the role of government, and where the growth of government is likely to take us.

These highly readable essays provide not only a clear analysis of how government intervention has spread, but also a call to resist the growing role of government.
