"We can't simply assume that, when people enter into the political process, they undergo the economic equivalent of castration; that they become muted agents whose only concern is to maximize the public good and welfare. We have to recognize that politicians are going to be concerned about their own power, they're prestige, their status. That voters, members of interest groups, people who participate in politics, are going to be arguing things that benefit themselves as much as any putative public good." - Dr Mark Pennington

Great quote from a great video within a great post. Thanks, Georg.
