Informing Public Policy is an excellent introduction to the insights that market process theory brings to public policy analysis. By utilizing only junior scholars, the editors not only demonstrate the usefulness of market process theory to practitioners, but also scholars.
— Joshua C. Hall, Professor of Economics, West Virginia University
This volume shows how effective public policy can be made in light of the fact that all relevant information can never be available to inform policy makers. The insights in this book will be valuable to academics and practitioners who are interested in improving the process of making public policy.
— Randall G. Holcombe, DeVoe Moore Professor of Economics, Florida State University
