Online resources: Summary: Why have some countries gone farther than others in adopting public policies that rely heavily on the free-market? Johan Christensen offers a new explanation: these policies are correlated with the entrenchment of U.S.-trained, neoclassical economists within that state. Comparing the cases of New Zealand, Ireland, Norway, and Denmark, he shows how the influence of economists helped to establish market-conforming tax regimesSummary: Economists and market-conforming reform -- The new economics and politics of taxation -- New Zealand : plotting a market-oriented revolution -- Ireland : populist politics in a generalist system -- Norway : economic experts in the social-democratic state -- Denmark : equality before efficiency, politicians before experts -- The power of economists within the statePPN: PPN: 897910257Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-4-EBA | ZDB-4-EBU | ZDB-4-NLEBK
