Description:

Why bad laws get passed. Public choice is a field of economics that takes what we understand about human behavior and applies that knowledge to humans who work in the public sector, politicians, bureaucrats, lobbyists, and voters. Professor Antony Davies of Duquesne University and Erika Davies of George Mason University explain the true cost of voting, and why laws that are not good for society often get passed.
