The tyranny of the majority is a real problem, particularly when the majority is ill-informed.

This book is full of more interesting ideas than most i can think of. Some of the chapters could keep a grad student in Politcal Science busy on research topics for years.
In the end i think
Caplan does not close the deal on why Democracy appears to actually work pretty well in much of the world.
Possible if he expanded some of his theories to show why Democracy has been such a failure at times it could have bolstered some of his arguments.
This is pretty much a must read of anyone interested in Political Economy or Democratic Theory.
