Interview with Tibor Rutar about his book Rational Choice and Democratic Government: A Sociological Approach. Discusses the rise and spread of democracy, the recent “democratic recession”, the 2008 economic crisis; rational choice theory, self-interest, and incentives; how much we should worry about average voters being uninformed; how market failure and government failure occur; where public choice analyses fail; whether democracy contributes to peace; and whether we should expect liberal-democratic capitalist societies to be more successful than authoritarian state-capitalist societies.
