Competing views of government
This chapter provides an introduction to the issues studied and discussions of government from a political economy perspective. It places this in its historical context and the traditional public economics approach to the role of government. It also discusses some of the empirical evidence on differences in the quality of government across countries that motivate these ideas as well as the themes of incentives and selection in politics in general terms.
