    Questions
    • Have you changed your mind regarding the outcome that you predict in The Calculus of Consent? Do you think there are other possibilities?
    • Could you ellaborate on your approach to a theory of justice, as compared to that of John Rawles?
    • How would you analize the results of the United States' presidential election, in terms of public choice, consensus and special interests groups?
    • What do you think of Bill Clinton's impeachment process?
    • Governments and politicians often loose clarity on the principles of free market economics. How can we focus more on exerting influence on them?
    • Regarding your point on constitutional constraints, how would you respond to Hayek's critique that man cannot rationally create a set of rules, that they are the result ofn a process?
    • Could you explain your ideas on a fiscal constitution?
    • Why have we had so many constitutional assemblies in Latin America, and why has the Unites States constitution lasted so long?
