Constitutional Economics

Čihák, Martin

Year: 2000   Volume: 50   Issue: 5   Pages: 298-301

Abstract: This article summarizes the main points discussed at the seminar ?Constitutional Economics: Cinderella in the Czech Economic Community? held by the Czech Economic Association in February 2000. The main speaker at the seminar was Prof. Karel Kouba (Faculty of Social Sciences, Charles University, Prague), who characterized constitutional economics as a still relatively new and promising research program. The ensuing discussion concerned several topics, including the relationship between public choice theory of political decision making and constitutional economics, and the failure of economists as advisers to politicians.
