PlaidStallion (9): Nobel Prize winner Buchanan was the founder of public choice theory, which attempts to view politics through an economic lens. This groundbreaking work argued that if all humans are rational and seek the best outcome for themselves, this must include politicians themselves.

Because democracies can become corrupt and tyrannical, the political process must be balanced by private property rights, which bring prosperity and stability.… (mehr)
