“Exit, Voice, and Loyalty”: Further Reflections and a Survey of Recent Contributions

September 1980 | Albert O. Hirschman

Three years after publication of Exit, Voice, and Loyalty: Responses to Decline in Firms, Organizations, and States, Professor Hirschman was called upon to extend his consideration of uses of economic modes of reasoning to dissect political phenomena. The exit-voice framework is extended in connection with the search for optimal ways of organizing public services-from the State itself to day care, to the British National Health Service. These little-known further reflections are reprinted as a service to the increasing number of students of exit-voice themes in health services.
