Kevin M. Murphy, George J. Stigler Distinguished Service Professor of Economics, Booth School of Business, the University of Chicago "In "Libertarianism, from A to Z", Jeff Miron provides a much needed introduction to Libertarian thinking. In the process, he demonstrates the power of economic analysis. His book provides a much needed lesson in how to reach a conclusion rather than start with one. Students and pundits could benefit greatly from reading Miron's work and following his example."Brink Lindsey, Vice President for Research, Cato Institute "In clear, common-sense prose, Jeffrey Miron looks at government policies from A to Z. To all of them he applies one simple test: do the benefits of government action outweigh the costs? And most of the time, he concludes the answer is no. Whether or not you always agree with him, you'll find your own thinking sharpened by his insistent, incisive skepticism." "Choice""An excellent small volume that explains the libertarian approach and philosophy as it applies to a wide variety of issues and topics...With its wealth of information, this book deserves a place on the shelves of all academic libraries...Essential."Reseña del editor:
Freedom from government control. Reduced regulation. More individual liberty. Libertarianism seems fairly straightforward on the surface, but it has won itself a reputation akin to a cult in the American political landscape. How has it created such a big tent that includes both conservatives and liberals? What are its policies, and how do these principles play out in the real world? With the support of Republican heavyweights such as Alan Greenspan and Ron Paul, libertarianism has taken centre stage while revealing little about itself to the American public. Here, acclaimed Harvard economist Jeff Miron sets the record straight with a no-frills dictionary that takes the reader beyond the 'keep your government off my rights' surface of libertarian thought. Miron takes us beyond the movement's controversial stances on prostitution and drug use. With entries ranging from Abortion to the War on Terror, Miron explains how Libertarian principles address real-world challenges. "Libertarianism, from A to Z", has everything a bourgeoning Libertarian - or curious citizen - needs to know.
