Book Description

Van Eecke has assembled a collection of articles and papers that covers the issue of merit goods from a variety of perspectives, providing a single source for researchers and economist interested in the issue. The work begins with a thorough look at Musgrave’s notion of merit goods. The subsequent sections expand the definition of merit goods and provide information on the application of merit goods theory in economic, philosophical, social, and religious terms.
