Rent Seeking: A Textbook Example
Pecorino, Paul
Journal of Economic Education, v37 n3 p331-339 2007
The author argues that the college textbook market provides a clear example of monopoly seeking as described by Tullock (1967, 1980). This behavior is also known as rent seeking. Because this market is important to students, this example of rent seeking will be of particular interest to them. (Contains 24 notes.)
