Integrating Sex and Drugs into the Principles Course: Market-Failures versus Failures-of-Market Outcomes.
Journal of Economic Education, v34 n1 p82-91 Win 2003
Argues that microeconomics principles courses are structured around an approach to policy that avoids many controversial but central policy issues including: the interplay of moral issues and efficiency; questions of consumer sovereignty; and questions of the interrelation between measures of efficiency and income distribution. Suggests a dual market-failure and failure-of-market-outcome policy framework instead. (JEH)
