Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A nationally known political economist shows that, just as in commercial markets, monopoly power in politics limits choice and ill- serves consumers. He exposes the contrived advantages enjoyed by political incumbents and reveals how most so-called reform proposals only increase those advantages. He outlines steps that must be taken to broaden opportunities for challengers and make the political marketplace more competitive and more responsive to voters. The author is a fellow at the Hoover Institution, at Citizens for a Sound Economy Foundation, and at the Center for Study of Public Choice at George Mason University. Annotation c.
