About this title:

Vol. 5 of The Collected Works. Originally given as a series of lectures at Cambridge University in 1961 and 1962, in The Demand and Supply of Public Goods Buchanan develops a theory of public-goods in which he compares market performance with political performance and lays some of the ground work for his contractarian theory of the “productive state.”
