An Exploration of Rent Seeking
The aim of this paper is to critically survey the recent literature on rent seeking and directly unproductive profit-seeking activities. The links with the related literatures on transactions costs and property rights are also explored. It is argued that a clearer understanding of wasteful competition emerges if the framework of constitutional economics is adopted. It is furthermore argued that a dynamic framework is most suitable to analyze wasteful competition. Copyright 1989 by The Economic Society of Australia.
