A Behavioral Theory of Elections

Descriere: Most theories of elections assume that voters and political actors are fully rational. While these formulations produce many insights, they also generate anomalies--most famously, about turnout. The rise of behavioral economics has posed new challenges to the premise of rationality. This groundbreaking book provides a behavioral theory of elections based on the notion that all actors--politicians as well as voters--are only boundedly rational. The theory posits learning via trial and error: actions that surpass an actor's aspiration level are more likely to be used in the future, while those that fall short are less likely to be tried later.
Based on this idea of adaptation, the authors construct formal models of party competition, turnout, and voters' choices of candidates. These models predict substantial turnout levels, voters sorting into parties, and winning parties adopting centrist platforms. In multiparty elections, voters are able to coordinate vote choices on majority-preferred candidates, while all candidates garner significant vote shares. Overall, the behavioral theory and its models produce macroimplications consistent with the data on elections, and they use plausible microassumptions about the cognitive capacities of politicians and voters. A computational model accompanies the book and can be used as a tool for further research.

Rule by Secrecy: Hidden History That Connects the Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons, and the Great Pyramids, the

What secrets connect Egypt's Great Pyramids, the Freemasons, and the Council on Foreign Relations? In this astonishing book, celebrated journalist Jim Marrs examines the world's most closely guarded secrets, tracing the history of clandestine societies and the power they have wielded - from the ancient mysteries to modern-day conspiracy theories. Searching for truth, he uncovers disturbing evidence that the real movers and shakers of the world collude covertly to start and stop wars, manipulate stock markets, maintain class distinctions, and even censor the news. Provocative and utterly compelling, Rule by Secrecy offers a singular worldview that may explain who we are, where we came from, and where we are going.

  

Lo Que VI: Experiencias de un Periodista

Pret: 94,00 RON

Jorge del Rayo Ramos

Lo Que VI: Experiencias de un Periodista Alrededor del Mundo

Este libro cuenta lo que el prestigioso periodista Jorge Ramos no ha podido decir por television. Como el mismo dice, muchas veces las cosas mas interesantes al cubrir una noticia ocurren detras de las camaras y estos relatos de viajes son el mejor ejemplo. Como reportero conductor titular del Noticiero Univision y escritor de varios libros, Ramos ha recorrido el mundo en busca de la noticia y ha entrevistado a algunos de los personajes mas poderosos del mundo. Todas esas vivencias estan aqui. Ademas, esta version actualizada del libro incluye sus experiencias, nunca antes contadas, en la guerra de Irak. Algunos relatos son solo ojeadas, hasta pestanazos, de sus viajes. En otros, se adentra a lo mas profundo y doloroso de un pais. Todos estan cargados de emocion y han marcado al periodista de una forma muy personal. Ver con los ojos bien abiertos y luego contar lo que viste, dice Ramos, es la funcion fundamental de un periodista. Solo ese ejercicio basico le permite despues decir: "Yo lo vi, nadie me lo conto."

Madeleine K. Albright

The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God, and World Affairs

Does America, as George W. Bush has proclaimed, have a special mission, derived from God, to bring liberty and democracy to the world? How much influence does the Christian right have over U.S. foreign policy? And how should America deal with violent Islamist extremists? Madeleine Albright, the former secretary of state and bestselling author of Madam Secretary, offers a thoughtful and often surprising look at the role of religion in shaping America's approach to the world. Drawing upon her experiences while in office and her own deepest beliefs about morality, the United States, and the present state of world affairs, a woman noted for plain speaking offers her thoughts about the most controversial topics of our time.
