About this Episode

We talk this week about elections and markets for votes with election-law scholar Kareem Crayton. Calling in from Hong Kong, where the design of elections looms large, Kareem chats with us about what elections are meant to do, the private and public nature of the voting booth, the practical legal immunity of decisions made for illegitimate reasons, comparisons of elections and other markets for products, racism, the Voting Rights Act, and more. Is racism more like polio or high blood pressure?
