Made famous by the Enlightenment thinker Adam Smith, the concept of an 'invisible hand' might be taken to imply that a government that governs least governs the best, from the viewpoint of society. Here an invisible hand appears to represent unfettered market forces. Drawing from this much-contested notion, Mittermaier indicates why such a view represents only one side of the story and distinguishes between what he calls pragmatic and dogmatic free marketeers. Published posthumously, with new contributions by Daniel Klein, Rod O'Donnell and Christopher Torr, this book outlines Mittermaier's main thesis and his relevance for ongoing debates within economics, politics, sociology and philosophy.
