Thursday, 28 February 2008 Group Think Where might group think affect Fieron’s argument? o Group think makes us think we’re stronger than others. Macedino Argument – institutionally, democracies have problems in crafting rational foreign policy o Rational choice gives you the best chance of giving you your outcome o Democracies have institutional restraints on them that make it difficult to pursue rational strategies o Counter-argument – democracies through the competition of ideas are more likely to give you a more accurate sense of the incentive structure o Institutions are a constraint unless they promote participation How do you overcome problems of democracy? o Leader – through personality/persuasion/charisma Effective manipulation of the system to over-run the problems Benefits to democracies in their ability to execute foreign policy o If you have lots of people working on a problem, the best ideas will win and the market will weed out the worst ones

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
