Public Choice, the journal of the PublicChoice Society, deals with the intersection between economics and politicalscience. It started when economists andpolitical scientists became interested inthe application of essentially economicmethods to problems normally dealtwith by political scientists. It has retained strong traces of economic methodology, but new and fruitful techniques have been developed which arenot recognizable by economists. In general. Public Choice can be viewed as afield of interest to both economists andpolitical scientists who are interested intheoretical rigor, statistical testing, andapplications to real world problems.
