Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt
Introduction: The history of labor laws and strikes has this in common to both ? laws become dead letters; the victories of strikes are nibbled away. Too much was expected even of those preparatory labor laws, universal suffrage and universal education. Amateur faith in laws and strikes weakens with experience. A law creates an abstract right ? an empty ideal. A strike may be a burst of enthusiasm, then disorganization. Some philosophizers fall back on the individual?s moral character. Little, they think, can be done by law or unions. There are others who inquire how to draft and enforce the laws, how to keep the winnings of strikes ? in short, how to connect ideals with efficiency.
