Testing Proposals for a “Democracy of the Future”
Homo Oeconomicus: Journal of Behavioral and Institutional Economics, 2018, vol. 35, issue 1, 123-126
Abstract This article suggests three empirical settings to analyze the effects of an extension of democratic voting rights as suggested by Bruno Frey (Homo Oeconomicus 34(1):1–9, 2017). I argue that some of Bruno Frey’s proposals can be analyzed with available observational data from different countries. Empirical evidence from the suggested settings may complement the theoretical debate on a democracy of the future.
