Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This book is made up of 20 previous published essays, edited by George J. Stigler. The volume takes as its point of departure the identification of the economic forces that determine a state's political institutions and the articulation of a theory of regulatory policy that accounts for those forces. Eight empirical studies of industry regulation follow, and the volume concludes with a consideration of several corrective policies.

About the Author

George J. Stigler received the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science in 1982. He taught at Brown University, Columbia University, and at the University of Chicago from 1958 until his death in 1991. He was also editor of the Journal of Political Economy. Among his books are The Theory of Price, The Organization of Industry, and Essays in the History of Economics. His autobiography--Memoirs of an Unregulated Economist--was published in 1988.
