Will we one day see a Council of Economic Advisors able to veto legislation for being uneconomic? It seems unlikely but do not underestimate the influence of my friend Bryan Caplan whose The Myth of the Rational Voter flirts with putting limits on the vote-franchise and yet still manages to get a favorable review in the New York Times Magazine!
Nor is that all. An even more powerful demonstration of the spread of Caplanianism can be found here.
Spread the word – buy The Myth of the Rational Voter and go forth and multiply.
