Tony Prosser, The Economic Constitution, Oup, Oxford, 2014, 304 Pp
If one needed to prepare a programme for an advanced course of Diritto pubblico dell’economia in an Italian University he or she could easily wonder why there is not in Italy a book like The Economic Constitution. By dealing with the relationship between constitutional law, public law and economics, it offers an economically well informed constitutional analysis, looking at theoretical and epistemological concepts useful both for analysing law and economics, and so on. What seems most relevant in Prosser’s analysis, in this book as in many other articles and essays, is his focusing mainly on methodological issues. One merit of the book is, indeed, its critical approach to the analysis, which is the very questions the author deals with.
