Synopsis: Book by Buchanan, James M.
From Library Journal:
Buchanan received the Nobel Prize in economics in 1986 and has written many noteworthy books, including The Limits of Liberty (1975) and The Economics and the Ethics of Constitutional Order (Univ. of Michigan Pr., 1991). The first part of his new book contains three lectures arguing that the more every member of society works and saves, the better off the entire community will be. Buchanan couples this with a discussion of the economic origins of ethical constraints. The second part of the book extends his arguments, with the last chapter suggesting that Adam Smith's distinction between productive and nonproductive labor may be made coherent with careful and critical interpretation. Perhaps because this book began as a series of lectures, it is intellectually stimulating, provocative, and relatively easy to comprehend. Recommended for all libraries with an interest in current economic issues or ethics.
