The Paradox of Leviathan: How to Develop and Contain the Future European State?
Source: European Journal of Law and Economics, Volume 4, Number 1, January 1997 , pp. 5-22(18)
Using a constitutional political economy perspective, we study the paradox of government (how a limited government can stay limited) and the different ways in which systems of law try to solve it. We then provide a tentative application to a possible European state and assess the relevance of some member countries' constitutional and administrative law, if they were both to develop and to contain this European state.
