Formal Models of Elections and Political Bargaining

Norman Schofield
Washington University

Ugur Ozdemir
Washington University

Abstract: The key theoretical idea in this paper is that activist groups contribute resources to their favored parties in response to policy concessions from the parties. These resources are then used by a party to enhance the leader’s valence — the electoral perception of the quality of the party leader. The equilibrium result is that parties, in order to maximize vote share, will balance a centripetal electoral force against a centrifugal activist effect. Under proportional electoral rule, there need be no pressure for activist groups to coalesce, leading to multiple political parties. Under plurality rule, however, small parties face the possibility of extinction. An activist group linked to a small party in such a polity has little expectation of influencing government policy. The paper illustrates these ideas by considering recent elections in Turkey, Britain and the United States, as well as a number of Euopean polities.

Keywords: Election, plurality rule, proportional representation, activist groups
JEL classification: H10, H11

Call for articles into Policy Discussion section

06/10/2009

The introduction of a special Policy Discussion section has taken place in the most recent issue, where as promised we present a first article entitled “Monetary Policy Strategies before Euro Adoption: The Art of Chasing Many Rabbits.” Therein, Juraj Antal (Czech National Bank) and his coauthors deal with the long-lasting policy issue of monetary policy tradeoffs in a country prior to euro adoption.

In the policy discussion section, we shall review articles on a slightly different basis than regular articles: A candidate topic primarily has to be of current policy interest, must deliver policy recommendations (or address ongoing policy puzzles), and maintain a strong link to academic literature, especially in terms of empirics. This is arguably a challenging task, hence we expect to publish articles including a maximum of one single policy discussion per article. We invite authors to come up with original articles for this growing segment.
