Microeconomics and the Public Economs examines the debate over the public economy, scrutinizing problems such as constitutional bias, bureaucratic inefficiency of the private sector and public economy firms. The authors raise essential theoretical and empirical issues for believers in both the market and the state, concluding that the pendulum of criticism has swung too far against the public sector, and arguing that the state should not always be rejected in favour of market solutions.

Synopsis:

This volume presents a set of new essays by leading economists, philosophers and political scientists concerned with the normative underpinnings of the state. "The Good Polity" is devoted to the analysis of detailed substantive issues arising within the normative theory of the state rather than with the exegesis of received views or the polemical statement of alternative positions. The essays are grouped around the themes of democracy, contract and compliance, and the responsibility of the state. Each author provides a detailed and freestanding examination of one aspect of the normative analysis of the state, and the resulting collection clearly displays the growing interaction between academic disciplines. The editors provide an introduction which sets out the analytic prerequisites for the normative theory of the state. The contributors are: Geoffrey Brennan, Joshua Cohen, Partha Dasgupta, Robert Goodin, Alan Hamlin, Russell Hardin, Philip Pettit, Robert Sugden, Albert Weale.
