Quantifying Good Government: Why and How? |

Quantifying Good Government: Why and How?


Lord Macaulay long ago complained about attempts to quantify good government. ­The debate is joined today not only by historians and political scientists but also by statisticians and economists.

Currently, the various measures of good government used, range from rights and liberties to efficiency to the lack of corruption. ­The lecture will examine a number of old and brand new measures. How effective are they? How can they be used and misused? What is the agenda for research and policymakers? Why should voters bother?
