Efficient Rent-Seeking Revisited

  • Gordon Tullock
Part of the Topics in Regulatory Economics and Policy book series (TREP, volume 1)


In, Toward a Theory of the Rent-Seeking Society, there is an article entitled “Efficient Rent-Seeking”, which among other things presents a rather difficult mathematical problem. The next 5 articles in this collection are devoted to the essentially mathematical discussions set off by this problem. In order not to keep the reader in suspense, I should say that it is still a problem and, indeed, one of the points of publishing this exchange is the hope that it will inspire mathematically inclined readers to solve the matter.
