Shrinking Leviathan: Can the Interaction Between Interests and Ideology Slice Both Ways?
By J. R. Clark
Dwight R. Lee

This article appeared in the Fall 2011 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

For more than one hundred years, noble concerns have persuaded well-meaning people to favor more government to promote the public interest, and others have exploited those concerns to grab political privileges at public expense. Contrary to conventional thought, however, the history of government expansion provides reasons to believe that the trend can be reversed.
