James M. Buchanan on Terminology - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 562
Terminology/Buchanan: "protective state": Provides citizens with protection in the form of legal certainty.
Productive state: here, citizens agree on what public goods they want to provide, in what quantities and at what cost to whom.
Both forms complement each other according to Buchanan's concept of economic liberalism. In this way, the state separates itself from the extremes of utopian anarchy (in the sense of a spontaneous, morally harmonizing coexistence order) and a threatening, expanding bureaucracy of a welfare state by Leviathan. See Buchanan 1975 (1).
