Some (not needed) evidence of self-interest in politics, the case of redoing primary votes
It looks as if the Dems are moving towards a do over in Michigan, but not Florida. Obama wanted a caucus in Florida, while Clinton wanted a primary. So why are they agreeing to a primary in Michigan? I think that the bottom line is pretty simple: Clinton leads the polls in Florida, but the polls are pretty close in Michigan.
Amazed how lucky I am that I have had jobs where I could just think about whatever I wanted to think about. I have published over 90 articles in academic journals. I received my Ph.D. in economics from UCLA in 1984.
