Description: In a clear, lively and non-technical style, the author explains and assesses the way in which micro, welfare and benefit-cost economists view the world of public policy. The work of these economists has significantly influenced scholarship in political science, law, philosophy, sociology and psychology, and it has led to important changes in government policy concerning the environment, housing and the regulation of industry. The author explains why Democratic and Republican economists so often agree about micro-policy issues and why they are so often at odds with many politicians, consumer advocates and business and union leaders. He argues that even an elementary knowledge of resource economics could help us avoid many current public policy blunders. The book will be of interest to students and teachers of public policy, public administration, business and law and to the educated lay reader.
