Can anyone recommend other economic books or economic papers on how businesses colluded with the govt to restrict free trade?Submitted by noblegas on Sun, 06/03/2012 - 16:51
The books on this subject I read so far have been:
In restraint of trade by Butler Shaffer
The Triumph of Conservatism by Gabriel Kolko
Regulations and Railroads by Gabriel Kolko
Antitrust and Monopoly by Dominick Armentano
Against Leviathan: Government Power and a Free Society by robert higgs.
Any other books on businesses colluding with government to restrain trade? Recommend some economic papers that have been published in academic journals too if you know of any.Oh, and I really only mean business industries colluding with the federal and/or state governments, not trade unions colluding with the government to restrict trade. I read plenty of books and economic papers on the relationship between trade unions and government , and its subsequent effects on the free market.
