The logic of collective action : public goods and the theory of groups by Mancur Olson( Book )

"This book develops an original theory of group and organizational behavior that cuts across disciplinary lines and illustrates the theory with empirical and historical studies of particular organizations. Applying economic analysis to the subjects of the political scientist, sociologist, and economist, Mr. Olson examines the extent to which the individuals that share a common interest find it in their individual interest to bear the costs of the organizational effort."--Page 4 of cover

Power and prosperity : outgrowing communist and capitalist dictatorships by Mancur Olson( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Power and Prosperity, which he completed just before his death last year, Olson takes on the broadest questions of his career: Why do some economies perform spectacularly, providing incredible wealth and prosperity, while others fail miserably? How do different forms of government either hinder or promote economic growth? And, more specifically: With the collapse of the Soviet system, why have markets not flourished?"--Jacket
A not-so-dismal science : a broader view of economies and societies by Mancur Olson( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The influence of economic thinking in other social sciences is bringing about a theoretical integration of all the social sciences under one overarching paradigm." "The chapters of this book illustrate the intellectual advances that account for this unified view of economies and societies. The key theme which emerges is the interaction between political, economic, legal, and social forces. Examples of this include the political influence of corruption and special interest groups, the organizational structure of a government, the effect of commercial law, and the differences between communities with high and low social fragmentation. All these affect and are affected by economic conditions. The editors and contributors of A Not-so-Dismal Science discuss and analyze these and many other factors, leading to the conclusion that economics is at the forefront of the movement toward a unified social science."--Page 4 of cover

Collective choice : essays in honor of Mancur Olson by Jac C Heckelman( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and German and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mancur Olson wrote important books in the area of Collective Choice and is considered one of the founding fathers of Public Choice as a field of economics. The chapters in this volume cover three main areas of Olson's life work: Collective Action, Institutional Sclerosis and Market-Augmenting Government. Some chapters directly assess Olsoǹs contributions, focusing on distinguishing what was original in his works from what was already in the literature, and guaging his impact on the fields of public economics and economic history. Other chapters present new tests and frequently extend his work. Each of the chapters is a new piece of scholarship inspired by and intended to honor Mancur Olson, and extend his influence to another generation of Collective Choice scholars and researchers

An economic theory of alliances by Mancur Olson( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report presents a new theoretical model of military alliances and other international organizations. The assumptions basic to the model are that nations act in their own best interests and that there is a 'public goods' aspect to all joint undertakings. The main conclusions drawn from the analysis are that (1) a less than optimal amount of resources will be devoted to an alliance or other international organization; (2) the burden of an alliance will be borne in a disproportional way, the larger members paying more than their proportional share. Empirical data from NATO and the United Nations are presented in support of these conclusions
