This is the first book in the Environment Unit's Series which specifically concentrates on the public choice school of analysis. For too long economists have recommended government intervention without having a model of how government actually works. As Mark Pennington shows, when bureaucratic incentives are analysed, government intervention is often worse than the market failure it is supposed to alleviate.
The IEA Environment Unit is delighted to offer this pathbreaking book. The views expressed are those of the author, not of the Institute (which has no corporate view), its Trustees, Advisors, or Directors.
