内容記述
This note examines t he welfare impacts of interactions between policymakers and firms under three models of governments, namely, the invisible hand, the helping hand, and the grabbing hand. We show that under a benevolent grabbing hand government, social welfare can be higher than that of an invisible hand government, whereas when the policymakers are sufficiently avaricious, social welfare under a grabbing hand government can be lower than that of an invisible hand government. We also predict that the economies that are more vulnerable to a welfare-worsening political economy trap are those where the policymakers are less driven by welfare concerns.
