Format: Hardcover
Most economic historians still believe that "history happens." This is most obvious in contemporary Swedish writings on mercantilism. Axelaxe must not have read this book -- it offers evidence (which real economic historians use) that mercantile states WERE rent-seeking societies. Perhaps the success of this idea is what upsets Axelaxe!

If you really want to show historians how useless economic history is, write a book like this one. To Ekelund and Tollison, the mercantile era is the rent seeking model, and nothing more. If you get the model, you get 200 years of history in a graph. If you are unconvinced, you must be a moron, according to these gentlemen. Ignorance about history is a virtue, one suspects.
