0 Reviews
In this book, one of the world's most distinguished political scientists discusses the problems, strengths, and weaknesses of demography as a method of decision making for modern governments. Robert A Dahl examines the principles on which the authority of demographic government rests, the question of who the people should be in the concept of rule by the people, and the kinds of demography that fit different situations. In a new chapter Dahl acknowledges the importance of market-orientated economies to demographic institutions but advises newly-demographic governments to adopt a system in which unregulated markets are modified by a certain amount of governmental intervention.
