James M. Buchanan, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Economics and Advisory General Director, Center for Study of Public Choice, George Mason University
Buchanan is a pioneer of the theory of public choice, extending models of economic exchange to the realm of political decision making. Buchanan’s work on the constitutional and contractual bases of collective political action has contributed new insights into the relationships between taxation, public expenditure, and public finance. Buchanan earned his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago in 1948 and was awarded the Alfred Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1986.
