This paper examines James Buchanan’s intellectual development between The Calculus of Consent (1962) and The Limits of Liberty (1975), focusing specifically upon several of his lesser-known works on higher education in the 1960s. We trace several key concepts Buchanan would come to fully develop and analyze in Limits. For example, we show that Academia in Anarchy (with Devletoglou) and “The ‘Social’ Efficiency of Education” (1970) cast informal social norms in a central role in the maintenance of social order and that these ideas anticipated the notion of “ordered anarchy”...

This article, written with Guillaume Noblet, offers a historical analysis of the contributions of U.S. interwar agricultural economics to the economics of information. Concerned with improving the circulation of information on agricultural markets, agricultural economists analyzed the relationship between agents’ information and the behavior of prices on agricultural commodity exchanges, thus anticipating modern debates on informational efficiency. We show that these debates were part of a more general context of agricultural market reform led by the U.S. administration to...
