He focuses upon the consultant physique of presidency and the truth that representatives can revenue extra from passing laws to learn certain pursuits than from passing laws within the common public interest. Using those insights Holcombe devel­ops a version that describes the allocative results of creating fiscal judgements via majority rule. The version describes a reliable equilibrium final result for majority rule judgements made in a multidimen­sional environment; it's a logical extension of the framework validated in his well-received Public Finance and the Political method.

With regard to agenda control, individual representatives are depicted as having control over the agenda for the issues that directly affect the special interest groups whose interests the representatives promote. The representative may choose which special interest to represent, and once this decision is made, the representative is free to bring to the floor any notion to further the well-being of the special interest. Getting the issue passed once it is on the agenda, however, is another matter, which is examined in detail in later chapters.

Whenever possible, I have tried to adhere closely to existing work in the area to make it as easy as possible for readers familiar with the related literature to spot similarities and differences in my model. The ideas developed in this book have been influenced by a number of individuals who deserve mention. James M. Buchanan read and commented on some early manuscripts that evolved into this book, but deserves credit over and above his comments on this specific work for the influence he has had over my general thinking on the subject.

In the referendum model, the referendum actually acts as a constraint on the budget maximizer's activity, so actually, expenditures should be lower in the agenda control referendum model than if the referendum were not held. If there is any validity to the agenda control model, then the important issues really lie outside the model. Why are agenda setters budget maximizers, and what is the equilibrium level of government spending when referenda are not used? Despite its shortcomings, the agenda control model did serve as a starting point for integrating the idea of budget maximization into voting models, and it also clearly focused on the importance of controlling the agenda to the outcomes of voting models.
