Abstract

Political economy - the original name for economics in its entirety - has in recent years witnessed a semantic broadening to include some of the preoccupations of classical economics. This intriguing collection of contributed work is concerned mainly with developments in the neo-classical tradition and examines the role played by rational choice in the decision-making processes of firms and the State.

With contributions from leading scholars including Tony Addison, Bruno Frey and Alan Rugman, this book is an important addition to the field of Political Economy and should become essential reading for all economists as well as policy makers.
