Pursuing Research of Consequence

Peter J. Boettke’s research has primarily been in the area of comparative political and economic systems and their consequences with regard to material progress and political freedom, with a particular interest in 20th century economic thought and the methodology of the social sciences.

Much of the suffering throughout the developing world in the 20th century was caused by bad ideas in economic theory and public policy and that these bad ideas were promulgated because of misguided notions in the philosophy of science as applied to the social sciences. It has become an important part of his efforts to explore and tell the tale of this mistaken intellectual path. The Austrian school of political economy, its ideas, historical figures, and fate in the economics profession and public policy discourse has been a source of continued intellectual inspiration for him since his undergraduate days and is no doubt evident throughout all his writings.

F. A. Hayek: Economics, political economy and social philosophy, New York: palgrave Macmillan, 2018

This book explores the life and work of Austrian-British economist, political economist, and social philosopher, Friedrich Hayek. Set within a context of the recent financial crisis, alongside the renewed interest in Hayek and the Hayek-Keynes debate, the book introduces the main themes of Hayek’s thought. These include the division of knowledge, the importance of rules, the problems with planning and economic management, and the role of constitutional constraints in enabling the emergence of unplanned order in the market by limiting the perverse incentives and distortions in information often associated with political discretion. Key to understanding Hayek's development as a thinker is his emphasis on the knowledge problem that economic decision makers face and how alternative institutional arrangements either hinder or assist them in overcoming that epistemic dilemma. Hayek saw order emerging from individual action and responsibility under the appropriate institutional order that itself emerges from actors discovering new and better ways to coordinate their behavior. This book will be of interest to all those keen to gain a deeper understanding of this great 20th century thinker in economics.

applied mainline economics: bridging the gap between theory and public policy, Arlington, VA: Mercatus Center, 2017 (with matthew d. mitchell)

How do human societies work, and how can we make them work better? What methods, ideas, and strategies should we use to help us answer these questions? Economists have more empirical tools—more data and more sophisticated ways of testing those data—than ever before. But unless those who employ these techniques also practice what the authors call “mainline” economic thinking, these new empirical methods are liable to generate more heat than light.

In this book, Matthew D. Mitchell and Peter J. Boettke summarize the ideas of mainline economics. They begin with a puzzle that has vexed economists for more than 200 years: Why are some societies fabulously wealthy while others are miserably poor? They briefly survey the empirical tools that might answer this question and show that this puzzle cannot be understood without grounding the analysis in theory, suggesting that the first place to start is with mainline economic theory. Throughout the discussion, Mitchell and Boettke offer the reader examples of how these tools have helped researchers and policy analysts bridge the gap between ideas and real-world problems.

 

The Economic Way of Thinking, New Jersey: Prentice Hall (now pearson), 10th ed., 2002; 11th ed., 2005; 12th ed., 2009; 13th ed., 2013 (with Paul Heyne [original author] and David L. Prychitko, preface by Douglass North)

Ideal for those with little or no background in economics, this book provides an in-depth discussion of a limited, but crucial set of economic principles and concepts--then applies these tools of analysis to a wide variety of familiar situations. It develops the basic principles of micro- and macroeconomic analysis, and rigorously employs them as tools rather than ends unto themselves. This book introduces readers to a method of reasoning; to think like an economist—teaching through example and application.

living economics: yesterday, today, and tomorrow, Oakland, CA: The independent institute and universidad francisco marroquin, 2012. Spanish e-book translation, 2013. Romanian Translation, 2013.

The passion of the teacher is often the inspiration for a student. This lively book illuminates how economics affects all walks of life, whether in the marketplace, voting booth, church, family, or any human activity. Boettke believes that economics is not merely a game to be played by clever professionals, but a discipline that touches on the most pressing practical issues at any historical juncture. The wealth and poverty of nations are at stake; the length and quality of life turns on the economic conditions individuals find themselves living with.

So teaching and learning economics are high stakes ventures. Along the way he introduces us to major thinkers: from Smith, Say, and Bastiat of the Classical School, to Neoclassical and Austrian scholars (Menger, Mises, Hayek, Kirzner, and Rothbard) on to New Institutional economists (Alchian, Coase, Demsetz, North, Ostrom and Williamson) and Public Choice theorists (Buchanan, Tullock, and others). This engaging and reasoned book is a must-read for economists, students, and everyone else who wishes to better understand economics.

 

Institutional Economics: Property, Competition, Policies, 2nd Edition,  Cheltenham, UK: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2012 (with Wolfgang Kasper and Manfred E. Streit)

This thoroughly revised, extended and updated edition of a critically acclaimed textbook provides an accessible and cohesive introduction to the burgeoning discipline of institutional economics. Requiring only a basic understanding of economics, this lucid and well-written text will be essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students wanting to understand the problems of the real world – such as entrepreneurship, innovation, the cost of the welfare state, international financial crises, and economic development. As institutional economics is now revolutionizing policy making, the book can also serve as a guide to the pressing problems facing policy makers in mature and emergent countries alike.

 

Robustní Politická Ekonomie pro 21. Století, Prague, Czech Republic: CEVRO Institut Academic Press, 2011

“In this book, Professor Boettke shows a wide range of applications of the Smith-Menger tradition for society's problems. It analyzes the key moments that determined the economics shift from its original base in humanities; discusses the limits of spontaneous self-regulation and rulemaking; maps one of the most important debates in the social sciences 20th century on the possibilities of central planning; demonstrates the need for understanding the economic collapse of the Soviet Union, but also the failure of modern attempts to export Western institutions in the developing world, contributing to the debate on management of jointly owned resources and clarifies the link to the right economics, modern political and administrative science.” - Professor Josef Šima, Rector of the CERVO Institute

Context Matters: Institutions and Entrepreneurship, Now Publishers, 2009 (with Christopher J. Coyne)

This survey explores the important connection between institutions and entrepreneurship. Institutions consist of the formal and informal “rules of the game.” Entrepreneurs act within a context determined by these rules. The rules of the game create payoffs that make certain entrepreneurial opportunities more attractive than others. This monograph explores the relevant literature from institutional economics and entrepreneurial studies, focusing on the important link between the two. Particular emphasis is placed on entrepreneurship within several different institutional settings— private for-profit, private nonprofit, and political—as well as the impact of entrepreneurship on institutions. This monograph concludes by discussing the implications for future research on the topic.

Challenging Institutional Analysis and Development: The Bloomington School, New York: Routledge, 2009 (with Paul Dragos Aligica)

The Bloomington School has become one of the most dynamic, well recognized and productive centers of the New Institutional Theory movement. Its ascendancy is considered to be the result of a unique and extremely successful combination of interdisciplinary theoretical approaches and hard-nosed empiricism. This book demonstrates that the well-known interdisciplinary and empirical agenda of Bloomington research program is the result of a less-known but very bold proposition: an attempt to revitalize and extend into the new millennium a traditional mode of analysis illustrated by authors like Locke, Montesquieu, Hume, Adam Smith, Hamilton, Madison and Tocqueville. As such, the School tries to synthesize the traditional perspectives with the contemporary developments in social sciences and, thus, to re-ignite the old approach in the new intellectual and political context of the 20th century.

The book presents an outline and a systematic analysis of the vision behind the Bloomington Research Program in Institutional Analysis and Development, explaining its basic assumptions, its main themes as well as the foundational philosophy that frames its research questions and theoretical and methodological approaches. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of social science, especially those in the fields of economics, political sciences, sociology and public administration.

Calculation & Coordination: Essays on Socialism and Transitional Political Economy, London: Routledge, 2001

This book explores the founding and failure of socialism and the attempts to reform and transform it in the twentieth century, focusing on the Soviet experience. It combines the strengths of the Austrian market-process tradition with the political economy of public choice to provide an analytical framework for theoretical and historical examination of socialist practice and post-socialist political economy.

Peter Boettke places particular emphasis on the difficulties of economic calculation in the absence of secure private property rights and on the importance of establishing a credible commitment to limited government in smoothing the path from Soviet socialism to a liberal political and economic order in Post-Soviet Russia.

The volume includes essays on: the theoretical debate over socialism and, in particular, the contributions of Mises and Hayek, the origins of socialism in Russia, the institutionalist maturation of socialist practice and the de facto organizing principles of the mature Soviet-type economy, and the collapse of and failure to successfully reform the Soviet system.

Why Perestroika Failed: The Politics and Economics of Socialist Transformation, London: Routledge, 1993

The events in the former Soviet Union from 1985 to 1991 were nothing short of spellbinding. Academics, pundits and the man on the street were all transfixed by the “Gorbachev phenomenon.” In this book, Peter J. Boettke argues that Gorbachev's reforms ultimately failed because they were not based on a sound understanding of market and political processes.

Why Perestroika Failed is the first book to apply an Austrian market process approach to analyze the economic dimensions of the Soviet system, and a public choice approach to address the political aspects. Boettke presents a critical assessment of the reform movement, examining the various proposals and paradoxes of the Soviet efforts.

Boettke argues that perestroika failed partly because it was never implemented. He goes on to demonstrate that even if the perestroika program had been carried out fully, it would not have produced the structural changes necessary to revive the Soviet economy. A knowledge of why perestroika failed is a crucial importance as the former Soviet republics and East and Central Europe chart a new course.

The Political Economy of Soviet Socialism: The Formative Years, 1918-1928, Boston: Kluwer Academic Publishers (now springer), 1990

The Political Economy of Soviet Socialism presents one of the most interesting Utopian Experiments in comparative political and economic history—the first decade of the Soviet experience with socialism (1918-1928). The goal of this book is to get at the meaning of this experience for comparative political economy today by using two methods of investigation—textual examination and intellectual history. This allows one to understand the Soviet experience with socialism by understanding what the various actors who made the history were thinking at the time.

Buchanan’s Tensions: Reexamining the Political Economy and Philosophy of James M. Buchanan, Arlington, VA: Mercatus Center, 2018 (with Solomon Stein)

James M. Buchanan, Nobel Laureate in Economics and one of the premier political economists of the 20th century, was at the heart of the emergence of public choice theory and the reintroduction of politics to academic economic analysis. Like any great and productive scholar, his body of work includes tensions, flaws, and inconsistencies that must be confronted by scholars looking to engage, critique, and advance his distinctive project in political economy.

Buchanan’s work is important but also open for contestation and improvement. This edited volume presents a critical assessment of Buchanan’s research and ideas. The contributions to this edited volume, which include original chapters by several of Buchanan’s coauthors and students, identify sources of tension within his writing. The volume’s key takeaway is that the research program Buchanan developed continues as an open-ended project, both as a social scientific approach and as a classical liberal political vision of constitutional order, rather than a static dogma or fruitless dead end. Taken as a whole, this volume identifies important questions and areas for future research by the next generation of constitutional political economists.

Comparative Economic Systems, Aldershot: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2018 (with Paul Dragos Aligica)

The search for alternatives to capitalism and the problem of comparative assessment of the performance of socialist and capitalist systems have inspired one of the richest and most remarkable episodes in the history of economic thought. By the mid 20th century an entire field had emerged, conceptualizing, theorizing, monitoring, and analyzing the largest and most consequential social and economic natural experiment in human history: Real-life Socialism. This volume focuses on the fundamental literature associated with the comparative study of socialist and capitalist systems. It features both a well-rounded inquiry of the modern history of economic thought, as well as a vibrant and critical disentanglement of the role of the economic system from the role of environment and policy decisions, as determinants of economic performance. Together with an original introduction by the editors, this collection will be an interesting and invaluable research resource for libraries, academics and students alike.

Exploring the Political Economy and Social Philosophy of F. A. Hayek, London: Rowman & Littlefield International, 2018 (with Jayme Lemke and Virgil Henry Storr)

This volume critically explore and extend Hayek’s Nobel Prize-winning work on knowledge and social interconnectedness from the disciplines of law, economics, philosophy, anthropology, political science, and history. Hayek’s insights about knowledge become even more important once it is recognized that nothing in the social world occurs in isolation. There is no such thing as a distinct economic, political, or social sphere—they are inextricably intertwined.

Given the range of both Hayek’s work and the contributing authors’ perspectives, the range of topics covered in this volume is extraordinarily wide, running the gamut from immigration, to white supremacy, to ancient agricultural practices, to the nature of what it means to be free.

Research Handbook on Austrian Law and Economics, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, Inc., 2018 (with Todd J. Zywicki)

The original contributions in this Research Handbook provide an introduction to the application of Austrian economics to law. The book begins with chapters on the methodology of law and economics before moving on to chapters which discuss key concepts in Austrian economics such as: dynamic competitive processes, spontaneous order, subjective value, entrepreneurship, and the limited nature of individual knowledge – as they relate to topics in evolutionary law and basic law.

This book presents contributions from both economists and legal scholars on topics ranging from methodology of analysis and the evolution of contemporary legal practice, to the teachings of basic law. Taken as a whole, this Research Handbook provides a strong overview of contemporary research in the Austrian school of law and economics. It is an approach that reflects both the examination of how alternative legal arrangements impact economic performance, and how to use the tools of basic economic reasoning to study the operation of legal rules.

Scholars working in the fields of law, jurisprudence, economics, and public policy will find this an important resource on the cutting edge of Austrian political economy in application to law and economics. 

Interdisciplinary Studies of the Market Order, London: Rowman & Littlefield International, 2017 (with Christopher J. Coyne and Virgil Henry Storr)

Market process theory is crucial to our knowledge and expectations of actors working toward economic coordination and cooperation. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, there has been a renewed interested in using new applications of market process theory to better understand the global political economy. 

This volume brings together original research from the Austrian, Virginia, and Bloomington schools of political economy to analyze central elements of market process and market order. These include economic calculation, entrepreneurship, institutions and learning. Edited by three of the leading scholars in this field, the collection offers a multitude of new interdisciplinary understandings by engaging with scholars working in anthropology, economics, entrepreneurship, history, political science, public policy, and sociology.

Mainline Economics: Six Nobel Lectures in the Tradition of Adam Smith, Arlington, VA: Mercatus Center, 2016 (with Stefanie Haeffele-Balch and Virgil Henry Storr)

Adam Smith is often referred to as the father of modern economics. Throughout his work, he attempted to answer one of the most important questions of all time: How can we humans live together peacefully and prosperously? The mainline of economic thought attempts to address the questions Smith advanced and is defined by a set of positive propositions about social order that were held in common from Adam Smith onward. 

The six Nobel Laureates in Economics featured in this volume—F. A. Hayek, James M. Buchanan, Ronald H. Coase, Douglass C. North, Vernon L. Smith, and Elinor C. Ostrom—are the ones who have most consistently sought to advance the insights found in Adam Smith. In their Nobel lectures, these scholars embrace the propositions of mainline economics and argue for continued work within the mainline tradition. Additionally, they offer serious critiques of mainstream economics and make appeals urging a return to the mainline. 

This collection serves as a useful resource for anyone interested in learning more about the mainline economists and for scholars who seek to contribute research in the mainline tradition.

The Oxford Handbook of Austrian Economics, New York: Oxford University Press, 2015 (with Christopher J. Coyne)

The Austrian School of Economics is an intellectual tradition in economics and political economy dating back to Carl Menger in the late-19th century. Menger stressed the subjective nature of value in the individual decision calculus. Individual choices are indeed made on the margin, but the evaluations of rank ordering of ends sought in the act of choice are subjective to individual chooser. For Menger, the economic calculus was about scarce means being deployed to pursue an individual's highest valued ends. The act of choice is guided by subjective assessments of the individual, and is open ended as the individual is constantly discovering what ends to pursue, and learning the most effective way to use the means available to satisfy those ends. This school of economic thinking spread outside of Austria to the rest of Europe and the United States in the early-20th century and continued to develop and gain followers, establishing itself as a major stream of heterodox economics. 

The Oxford Handbook of Austrian Economics provides an overview of this school and its theories. The various contributions discussed in this book all reflect a tension between the Austrian School's orthodox argumentative structure (rational choice and invisible hand) and its addressing of a heterodox problem situations (uncertainty, differential knowledge, ceaseless change). The Austrian economists from the founders to today seek to derive the invisible hand theorem from the rational choice postulate via institutional analysis in a persistent and consistent manner. Scholars and students working in the field of History of Economic Thought, those following heterodox approaches, and those both familiar with the Austrian School or looking to learn more will find much to learn in this comprehensive volume.

The Economic Role of the State, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, Inc., 2015 (with Peter T. Leeson)

The Economic Role of the State presents a comprehensive collection of seminal works from David Hume through to Barry Weingast. Including an original introduction, the volume covers the main theories and justifications for and against state intervention as they have developed over two centuries. It also incorporates an institutional approach to the role of the state in enforcing ‘the rules of the game’ of the economy as well as examining specific issues including market failure, rent-seeking and regulation. Economists and political scientists alike will find this to be the ideal guide to the classic and modern arguments surrounding the state’s role in the economy.

The Collected Works of Israel M. Kirzner (with Frederic Sautet), Indianapolis, IN: Liberty Fund, 2009-2019.

This series features the collected works of Israel M. Kirzner (New York University), a prominent economist of the Austrian school of political economy.

Handbook on Contemporary Austrian Economics, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, Inc., 2010

This Handbook looks through the lens of the latest generation of scholars at the main propositions believed by so-called ‘Austrians’. Each contributing author addresses key tenets of the school of thought, and outlines its ongoing contribution to economics and to the social sciences. Contributor's include, Scott A. Beaulier, Peter J. Boettke, Christopher J. Coyne, Anthony J. Evans, Peter T. Leeson, Stephen C. Miller, Benjamin Powell, Frederic Sautet, Virgil Henry Storr, Edward Peter Stringham, J. Robert Subrick.

The Legacy of Ludwig von Mises: Theory and History, 2 volumes, Aldershot, UK: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2006 (with Peter T. Leeson)

Ludwig von Mises is not the most well-known classical liberal political economist of the twentieth century. He has remained relatively obscure because both methodologically and ideologically his thinking went against the prevailing mood and on a personal level he was more difficult to approach than other thinkers of his time. However, among those in the know, he is considered to be the architect of Austrian economic thought, the most ardent defender of classical liberalism in the last century and history’s strongest critic of socialism.

This new collection of previously published writings has three main aims: to introduce the reader to von Mises and the core of his ideas; to provide a number of essays which project the Misesian spirit, contribute to Mises’s system and suggest areas for future research based on his insight and thought; and to establish an interest in Mises’s ideas among those not already familiar with them.

This pathbreaking book seeks to be the definitive collection documenting the intellectual legacy of Ludwig von Mises in modern political economy. Its intended readership is scholars in the history of political economy and in particular those interested in the Austrian school of economics.

Socialism and the Market: The Socialist Calculation Debate Revisited, 9 volumes, London: Routledge, 2000

This 9 volume set contains the material necessary for a full understanding of the Socialist Calculation debate, as well as giving critical insight into the comparative economics of Capitalism, Socialism and the alternative Market Socialism.

The Legacy of F. A. Hayek: Politics, Philosophy and Economics, 3 volumes, Aldershot: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2000 (with assistance from Andrew Farrant, Greg Ransom, and Gilberto O. Salgad)

This major three-volume collection—offered in the centenary year of Hayek’s birth—celebrates a lifetime of scholarship and original contributions that cross the disciplines of politics, philosophy and economics.

Hayek rose to fame as a young technical economist engaged in debate with Keynes and became infamous in middle-age for his harsh critique of socialist planning. For much of the 1950s and 1960s Hayek was ignored as relic of 19th century economic liberalism as the tide of intellectual and political fashion moved against both his warnings about Keynesian demand management and his critique of socialist planning. Late in life, Hayek was celebrated as a prescient scholar who foresaw the decline in both the Keynesian and socialist systems of economic control.

Hayek made major analytical contributions which have yet to be appreciated by either friend or foe. Through this selection of classic articles The Legacy of Friedrich von Hayek attempts to place Hayek’s contributions to political economy in a proper perspective.

Market Process Theories, 2 volumes, Aldershot: Edward Elgar Publishing, 1998 (with David L. Prychitko)

Market process theory is principally concerned with explaining how the market moves towards a state of general economic equilibrium and how production and consumption plans become coordinated. Market Process Theories presents in two volumes the most important articles by leading economists which contribute to an understanding of the processes of economic coordination.

Volume I examines classical and neoclassical theories; it suggests that many classical writers can be interpreted as having anticipated a more dynamic disequilibrium analysis, and evaluates Marxian process theory also in this light. Other topics include analyses of price adjustment models, stability and disequilibria and a discussion of the challenge of increasing returns. Volume II deals with criticisms of standard theories such as institutionalism and post Keynesian criticisms. It also offers an exploration of the Swedish influence in the field with papers on the theory of savings and the concept of monetary equilibrium among others. Austrian economics is the subject of the final section, which explores such topics as the meaning of competition, process analysis and price and quantity adjustment. 



The Elgar Companion to Austrian Economics, Aldershot: Edward Elgar Publishing, 1994

he Elgar Companion to Austrian Economics is a major new reference work which highlights the common ground between all the branches of the school while demonstrating the breadth and diversity within it. The Companion reflects the many areas where Austrian economists have made contributions, including technical economics, methodology of the social sciences, political theory and political science. This book includes contributions from an international group of scholars whose work demonstrates a basic similarity and interest in questions which have historically been associated with the Austrian approach to economics, although many of the contributors would not consider themselves to be strictly of this school.  

Each entry is fully referenced and includes suggestions for further readings on the topic. The Companion will be the standard reference work for all those engaged in the field of Austrian Economics. It not only introduces students to the Austrian school, but also serves as an important research tool for scholars working within the Austrian tradition.

The Collapse of Development Planning, New York: New York University Press, 1994

This book showcases a diverse range of development experiences in order to ascertain the reasons for this quagmire. Case studies of development planning in China, India, post-WWII Japan, South Korea, Africa, and Eastern Europe, and of foreign aid programs (including the Marshall Plan) illustrate the insights an Austrian approach provides toward an understanding of the failure of government development planning. While economists working within the Austrian tradition have previously addressed development issues, this volume represents the first full-length treatment of the subject from a modern market process perspective. Exploding the hegemony of the traditional development paradigm, The Collapse of Development Planning addresses one of the most pressing issues of international political economy. 

Conventional wisdom has it that government management of the economy is the means to transform a backward economy into a dynamic, modern one. Yet, after decades of international aid programs, development planning is today largely perceived as a failure paralyzed by its own bureaucracy and inefficiency. Despite billions of dollars of investment, development successes are few and far between and waste and mismanagement abounds. 

The Market Process: Essays in Contemporary Austrian Economics, Aldershot: Edward Elgar Publishing, 1994 (with David L. Prychitko)

The Market Process presents a series of important and innovative articles written by economists of the Austrian School. Covering the gamut of economic issues, including equilibrium theory, free banking, public choice, and the problems of contemporary social reform, the book is an ideal introduction to the diversity of contemporary Austrian economics and its innovative trajectory of research in the late twentieth century.

Drawing upon essays published in the journal Market Process during the 1980s, this book reflects an extended dialogue over the value and limitations of Austrian economics. It makes available to a wider audience contributions by some of the leading figures in the field. At the cutting edge of interdisciplinary research, it incorporates the latest developments in areas overlooked by neoclassical economists including process analysis, methodological subjectivism, and phenomenological hermeneutics.

This book should be of interest to all those who seek an alternative to formal, neoclassical economics, as well as other researchers in the social sciences who study exchange processes. In addition, it will be of general interest to Austrian and public choice economists as well as historians of economic thought.
