Hiring and Firing Public Officials: Rethinking the Purpose of Elections - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 9780199759972

Typically, when Americans look at the re-election success rates of public officials, they are disgusted. When 98 percent of Congresspeople are re-elected (most easily), the game looks rigged, and democracy seems a sham. Conventional wisdom holds that competitive elections are necessary for a healthy democracy, and that the infrequency of competitive elections in the U.S. is indicative of a deeper problem in our politics. In Hiring and Firing Elected Officials, Justin Buchler turns the conventional wisdom on its head. He argues that our dissatisfaction with the current state of electoral politics derives from a fundamental misunderstanding of what elections are and what purpose they serve. He begins by asking us to consider two hypothetical companies: one company randomly fires and replaces half of its executive staff every two years, but another company rarely fires anyone. On the basis of that information, one would sensibly infer that the second company is the more stable and profitable company. Yet, advocates of competitive elections want legislative elections in the U.S. to look more like the employment practices of the first company. Part of that preference comes from the positive connotations of the word, 'competition, ' but among all types of social scientists, a more important source of that belief is the widely-accepted notion that an election is essentially a consumer product market. According to that market paradigm, voters are consumers, candidates are competing firms, and an election is a market in which voters exchange votes for policy by voting for the candidates whose policies they prefer. This analogy underlies decades of electoral theory, but Buchler contends that it does not capture the true nature of elections. An election is a mechanism by which voters hire and fire public officials. It is not a consumer product market. It is not even a labor market. It is a single employment decision. He contends that we should therefore attempt to create an incentive structure under which public officials, who are employees of the voters, perform their jobs well. That requires retaining employees who perform their jobs well, and firing those who do not. If Incumbents do their job well, they should be overwhelmingly reelected by landslide margins. Frequent competitive elections are in fact not indicative of a healthy democracy, then, but of an ailing political system. What is crucial for a democracy is not how often incumbents lose, but the credibility of the threat to remove them for misbehavior combined with the reward of reelection for faithful public service. All told, this innovative and surprising argument will reshape how we think about elections in America.

Thus, the health of democracy depends not on regular competitive elections, but on posing a credible threat to fire public officials who do not perform their jobs well. However, the purpose of that threat is to force public officials to act as faithful public servants so that they do not have to be fired. Thus, competitive elections, by most definitions, are indicative of a failure of the democratic system.
