IS DEMOCRACY A FAILURE?
A Debate between Professors Bryan Caplan and Donald Wittman
Does every vote really matter?
Why do we have agricultural subsidies? Why do people think foreign aid is 40% of the U.S. government budget? Why are we against immigration?! Economists argue people are rationally ignorant about politics…it’s just too expensive to know what is really going on in politics. Now, what if people were actually irrational and biased, picking the wrong policies in a democracy, on purpose? Are institutions and other democratic mechanisms strong enough to guarantee good outcomes?
