Abstract

Economic policymaking in modern democracies generates a great deal of special-interest politics. In policy areas such as finance, trade policy, and regulation, policy decision create benefits for well-defined groups with the cost borne by society at large. Given the difficulties with the aggregation of preferences, social chioces are often ill defined. Such difficulties can be resolved, however, by suitable institutional arrangements. As a result, many reserachers have examined the institutional details of the policy process in order to predict likely policy outcomes.
