April 2013 Issue of Public Choice Tackles Some International Issues

The new issue of the journal Public Choice, edited by the Huntsman School’s Dr. William F. Shughart, II, examines some particularly interesting international issues.

  • An essay by Cristina Bodea, for example, examines the fiscal performance of independent central
  • banks in post-communist countries, all filtered through the prism of “regime type.”
  • Another essay, by William Pyle and Laura Solanko, studies Russia’s business lobbies, particularly their composition and interests.

Inequality in developing economics is dissected by Adalgiso Amendola, Joshy Easaw, and Antonio Savoia, specifically to understand the impact of institutional development on that inequality.
