Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • World War II
  • Politics

His primary scientific interests are in Politics, Public administration, Legislature, Delegation and Control. His Politics research incorporates themes from Congressional oversight, Public policy and Law and economics. He works mostly in the field of Public administration, limiting it down to topics relating to Power and, in certain cases, Reed's rules, as a part of the same area of interest.

As part of his studies on Legislature, Mathew D. McCubbins frequently links adjacent subjects like Government. The concepts of his Delegation study are interwoven with issues in Democracy, Abdication and Bureaucracy. While the research belongs to areas of Control, Mathew D. McCubbins spends his time largely on the problem of Structure, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Conflict of interest and Scope.

His most cited work include:

  • Congressional Oversight Overlooked: Police Patrols versus Fire Alarms (1797 citations)
  • Legislative Leviathan: Party Government in the House (1569 citations)
  • Administrative Procedures as Instruments of Political Control (1509 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Public administration, Politics, Legislature, Law and Democracy are his primary areas of study. His research in Public administration intersects with topics in Bureaucracy, Government, Control, Delegation and Power. His Politics research focuses on Public relations and how it connects with Active listening.

Mathew D. McCubbins interconnects Public economics, Opposition, Direct democracy and Law and economics in the investigation of issues within Legislature. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Elite and Voting. His biological study deals with issues like Positive political theory, which deal with fields such as Repeated game and Cognitive Hierarchy Theory.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Public administration (24.47%)
  • Politics (22.36%)
  • Legislature (21.94%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Game theory (8.86%)
  • Legislature (21.94%)
  • Politics (22.36%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Mathew D. McCubbins mainly investigates Game theory, Legislature, Politics, Behavioral game theory and Cognitive psychology. His Game theory research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rationality, Social psychology, Flexibility and Action. The various areas that he examines in his Legislature study include Veto, Cheating and Public administration.

His Public administration research incorporates elements of Presidential system, Bureaucracy and Agency. His Politics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Reciprocity and Law and economics. His work carried out in the field of Behavioral game theory brings together such families of science as Cognitive Hierarchy Theory, Repeated game, Equilibrium selection and Positive political theory.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • State and Local Government Finance: The New Fiscal Ice Age (37 citations)
  • The Theory of Minds Within the Theory of Games (31 citations)
  • Knowledge and networks: An experimental test of how network knowledge affects coordination (29 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • World War II
  • Politics

Mathew D. McCubbins mainly focuses on Politics, Game theory, Legislature, Public administration and Dictator game. His work on Democracy as part of general Politics research is often related to Regression discontinuity design, thus linking different fields of science. His Game theory research also works with subjects such as

  • Cognitive psychology that connect with fields like Preference, Social psychology, Consistency, Rationality and Cognitive Hierarchy Theory,
  • Behavioral economics most often made with reference to Action.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Fiscal policy, Principal–agent problem, Cheating and Law and economics in addition to Legislature. His study in Law and economics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Government, Reciprocity, Vote trading and Corruption. His research investigates the connection between Public administration and topics such as Presidential system that intersect with problems in Separation of powers, Policy outcomes and Political economy.
