The policy implications of the book are even interesting or relevant to the real world. Buchanan and Tullock (BT) wrote The Calculus of Consent: Logical Foundations of Constitutional Democracy in 1962, but their analysis is still worth considering. The authors seem to prefer small government and unanimous decision rules, but that just isn't practical. There are reasons why a unanimous decision rule would not work and the authors don't address some of the more interesting implications (such as income inequality). Although the book is written for academics, it is not hard to read. Reasonable concentration and patience is all that's required to understand BT's exposition.

Recently, I read for the first time Gordon Tullock’s masterpiece The Transitional Gains Trap, first published in 1975. In the piece, Tullock talks about a tragedy that often results from government regulation or spending. The government takes an action that initially benefits a particular group, although at the expense of imposing an inefficient policy on the public. But over time, even that special interest group will not benefit from the government program. Yet that group will fight hard to prevent the program from being eliminated, since eliminating it will make that group worse off.
