Egoistic Rationality and Public Choice: A Critical Review of Theory and Evidence
Over the past twenty years there has been a rapid develop ment of public-choice theory: that is, the application of an assumpti on of egoistic utility maximization to political behavior. It is argu ed that, in important areas, the available empirical evidence runs co unter to this theory. The continuing work in this area therefore refl ects ideological, rather than explanatory or predictive, concerns. Copyright 1987 by The Economic Society of Australia.
