everyone should read this book before they talk about politics. so much of the quality of american politics (or rather lack thereof) is a result of our flawed institutional design. however, the way in which everyday people discuss politics makes it seem that the problem with politics is our politicians. while i agree that many of our politicians are deplorable people--we must at least acknowledge that our institutions are set up to produce a particular kind of outcome. our politics won't get better till our institutions do--and this book tells us how they can improve.
