Product description

A new textbook by Charles Wheelan, author of Naked Economics, Introduction to Public Policy uses economic principles to demonstrate that sound public policy occurs when unfettered private markets provide the greatest good for the greatest number. Only when it does not do this is government intervention needed.

Review quote

Wheelan s new text is indeed one of the most fluidly written, engaging, sometimes jaunty and sometimes challenging books on the subject. My students will see many topics come alive with this analytical yet unpretentious treatment of public policy principles. The author draws the students into the questions and then turns them toward economics and public-policy analysis concepts. --Gregory Gleason, The University of New Mexico"
