In Ethics and Economic Progress, Nobel Prize-winning economist James M. Buchanan argues that ethical or moral constraints on human behavior exert important economic effects. He considers the question, Why are we better off by our own reckoning, when we work harder, save more, and deal honestly in markets and in politics? This nontechnical book opens up the entire economics-ethics nexus for examination. Part 1 examines behaviors and standards that can be subsumed under the term "Puritan ethics." The work ethic and the saving ethic may not be fashionable today, but Buchanan asserts that many modern attitudes and habits relate to the decline in productivity growth in the economy. If we acknowledge that moral values are important to our economic well-being, it follows that we must all "pay the preacher," on strictly economic grounds. Part II extends the argument, examining the implications for ethical norms that describe the behavior of taxpayers or public program users and the economics of the work ethic as it applies to nonlabor resources. The last chapter, perhaps the most controversial, suggests that Adam Smith's distinction between productive and nonproductive labor, which has been almost universally dismissed by economists, may indeed have economic relevance. Chapters 1, 2, and 3 were presented in 1991 as the first lectures in the W R. Howell, Sr., Second Century Lecture Series at the University of Oklahoma

Politics by principle, not interest : toward nondiscriminatory democracy by James M Buchanan ( Book )
19 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book focuses on the effects of applying a generality constraint on the political process. Under this requirement, majorities would be prohibited constitutionally from treating different persons and groups differently. The generality principle is familiar in application to law; legal systems incorporate the ideal that all persons are to be treated equally. In summary, this book extends the generality norm to politics. The primary argument here is centered on political efficiency, which is increased when governments are constrained to treat persons or groups generally rather than differentially. The political efficiency defense of the generality constraint is based on a public choice analysis of the implication of majoritarian discrimination
