This appears to be backed up in statements by Nelson (1987) and Dahlman (1979), quoted in the textbook Economic Efficiency in Law and Economics: “A fundamental problem with the concept of market failure, as economists occasionally recognise, is that it describes a situation that exists everywhere” (Zerbe, 2002, p....   [tags: Externality, Market failure, Welfare economics]
