Myth of the Rational Voter

Bryan Caplan helps us understand the mechanics of a democratic system.This talk is a brilliant introduction to understanding the mechanism at play in an election and how people vote. As per most complex ideas, it doesn’t fit in a single powerpoint slide, basically, if you  want to learn something fundamental, you need to spend 50 minutes of your life on this video. Luckily, Mr Caplan’s sense of humor makes this clip a lot more pleasant than it otherwise could be.
