New Media  | 20 de abril de 2012  | Vistas: 103

Gordon Brady shares his perspective on public choice. He explains that this term is conceived as economic analytical tools applied to the political decision-making process. He elaborates on how productive this element can be in learning about the motivations of different political characters, such as politicians, judges, and bureaucrats. Brady also tells about his experience as a public advisor for the U.S. government, where he was able to prove public choice theories and demonstrate how useful they are in analyzing the efficiency of public officials.
