Statul de drept din perspectivă economică
[Rule of law from economic perspective]


  • Argesanu, Nicolae Razvan


State involvement in the economy and society in general was and is still a fundamental problem, being approached by the all schools of economic thought. Its role was perceived differently from one historical stage to another and from one country to another, always constituting itself in a matter of political dispute, both in theory and in practice. In these circumstances, the issue of rule of law , defined by the Jacques Chevallier, as the "type of political regime in which state power is framed and limited by law", initially appreciated that represents a lawyers privilege, by starting from the privilege of the idea that all: rulers and ruled, the state, shall be subject to law, that "nobody is above the law", is approached from the twentieth century by philosophers, politicians or, recently, economists opposing to the totalitarian state and welfare state.
