    Views

    My early work was in the field of industrial organisation, commencing with an institutional study of the British Monopolies Commission, but moving on to the application of structure-conductperformance theory to industrial analysis. An interest in the concept of Xefficiency shifted my interest to welfare economics. A major research collaboration with Alan Peacock led to a range of contributions to a liberal political economy and this is an abiding interest.

    Following a period of writing in the field of environmental economics, emphasising the relevance of market studies, my interests shifted significantly towards public choice and law and economics and most of my recent and current research is in these important fields. The influence of the Virginia school upon my work is obvious and I have now moved location to my true home. Still, my love for the ‘old’ Chicago remains, influences my work, and creates a constructive tension with Virginian-blend economics.

    Of the new Chicago, the least said the better.
