New Political Economy/Buchanan: The term "economic imperialism" could also include the New Political Economy, whose most important representatives were James Buchanan (1919 - 2013), Anthony Downs (born 1930) and Gordon Tullock (1922 - 2014).
The aim is to extend theoretical economic analyses to other areas of society and to the study of all human behaviour.
VsClassical Economy/VsSmith: economic and political aspects are not combined as in the classics
but political events are seen exclusively through the eyes of homo oeconomicus. (1)(2)
