Abstract

The Center for the Study of Public Choice has been quite successful at generating and spreading ideas. James Buchanan, Gordon Tullock, and their colleagues challenged many core beliefs of economists and political scientists who viewed government as benign force in the economy, and they ended up spawning a new field of study. Now it is not considered radical to apply economic analysis to government itself. How could such a small group of people get this idea out to so many people, and how was the atmosphere that fostered this study? The Production and Diffusion of Public Choice Political Economy attempts to answer these questions.
