Presenter:Larry Bartels, Vanderbilt UniversityTitle: “Democracy for Realists”Overview:Prof. Bartels’ presentation will address the promise and pitfalls of “retrospective voting,” in which voters reward or punish incumbents for past performance. While the approach sounds appealing, findings detailed in his upcoming book — “Democracy for Realists” (co-authored with Prof. Chris Achen of Princeton) – provide evidence that retrospective judgments are often altogether too blind, myopic, and random to reliably select competent leaders.Prof. Bartels is Professor of Political Science and May Werthan Shayne Chair of Public Policy and Social Science at Vanderbilt University, where he also directs the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions. He is the author of several books on democracy, elections and voting.
