Nobel Prize-winning economist James Mirrlees is one of the world's leading figures in welfare, development, and public sector economics. This volume brings together for the first time published and unpublished but seminal work in these key areas, and will be a very useful source for anyone looking for a comprehensive picture of Mirrlees' contribution to the subject.

Industry Reviews

James Mirrlees' special gift is to bring new perspectives to the understanding of major economic issues, economic growth and the choice of taxes. The importance of asymmetric information in the optimality of taxes was one of his greatest contributions, the study of different aspects of the role of increasing returns in economic growth another. Drawing these contributions, scattered over many journals, into a single volume will remind of the power of Mirrlees's analysis and make reference that much easier. Kenneth J. Arrow, Nobel Laureate and Professor Emeritus of Economics, Stanford University Not only does this book belong on the shelves of every economist, also the contents of the papers belong in the undersatnding of every economist. Peter Diamond, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
