The Economics of Law, Order, and Action

My book "The Economics of Law, Order, and Action: The Logic of Public Goods" is now available for purchase. Its primary purpose is to provide a comprehensive challenge to the standard position of the economic and political mainstream, according to which efficient production of so-called public goods, including law and defense, requires the use of territorial monopolies of coercive force.

In other words, in an attempt to draw on the interdisciplinary spirit of classical political economy, it aims at providing a wide-ranging economic and ethical case for extending the applicability of voluntary, entrepreneurial cooperation to the realm of creating and sustaining legal and protective services together with attendant institutional frameworks.
