Given its pre-eminent status in the literature on government failure, a separate subsection of this chapter is devoted exclusively to a discussion of the public choice tradition. As we shall see, public choice theory seeks to apply the tools of economics to non-market or political processes underlying public policy formulation and implementation, and in so doing has developed a comprehensive critique of government behaviour. In stark contrast to the market failure paradigm, public choice theorists have rejected the ‘common good doctrine’ (Breton 1995) implicit in this approach and instead have developed models of decision-making in advanced representative democracies on the assumption ‘that people should be treated as rational utility maximisers in all of their behavioural capacities’ (Buchanan 1978: 17).
In the mid-1990s a trend towards a ‘super-market’ state became apparent, including the use of market orientation and contracting out, service decelerations and ‘one-stop’ shops, among other things. University and health became more market focused, adopting a ‘money follows client’ approach, although, as the authors note, these are assembled in a particularly Norwegian way. However, the change of government and the election of a Red–Green coalition in 2005 saw an explicit post-NPM agenda of strengthening the centre and reintegrating the state, although there is considerable resilience of NPM features – more a ‘re-balancing’ than a ‘roll-back’.
