One major aspect should be of critical concern to economists: the model of political behaviour used by Hathaway is 'a rejection of the concept that (the political process) is essentially and largely a process which derives the common interest or the public good'. Thus if this model is to be accepted, economists must probably discard their concept of a social welfare or utility function. If they want to keep it, they must use it in empirical analyses with great care. Beyond the relevance of several of the same issues today, Hathaway's conceptual framework is of interest for the purpose of this paper, because it clearly belongs to the political economy perspective.
