Selection and Incentives in Government
MetadataShow full item record
Improving governance requires both that incentives be improved and that the right people are selected to make decisions. The former has been analyzed extensively, but the latter has received much less attention among scholars of political economy. This talk will review some general arguments for the importance of selection. It will also discuss alternative means of selection and what makes democratic selection work better. Finally, it will discuss the emerging evidence on the importance of selection in improving government performance.
