Pleasantville Politics: Selecting Politicians According to Ability

Onderzoeksoutput: Chapter


Assume a community that needs politicians. They might not be desperately needed, just: needed. Now consider the type of politicians. You may want to select the most empathic ones, the most committed, the most funny, the best-looking, or just the most able. Before you claim that the latter option is by far-and self-evidently-superior, think twice. Selecting politicians according to their ability may turn out to be impossible. And if it were possible, it may not be sustainable. And if it were sustainable, it is most likely to be undesirable. So, we shouldn’t bother.
