Discussion Papers in Economics at the University of Washington from Department of Economics at the University of Washington

Abstract: rkers choose the limiting and lenght of emigration. In modern liberal democracies, offring individual voters in political elections money for their votes is wrong and illegal; offering groups of voters particular benefits in exchange for their votes is constitutionally protected. Voters do not sell their votes; instead, voters assign their votes to legislative representatives who sell or trade on their behalf.
