Homework Help: Economics

Posted by Megan on Monday, July 10, 2006 at 2:02pm.

Itís increasingly popular among the states to allow the public to place various propositions on the ballot. When more then 50 % of votes cast are in favor of a proposition, it is approved and becomes law unless itís held up in the courts. For example, proposals relating to tax cuts, gay rights, and other contentious issues have been on the ballot in various states in recent years. Does the increasing popularity of this method relate to elected officials being bundled goods? Does the popularity also suggest that the public is responding to government failure? Explain.


I would say yes and yes. What do you think?
