  3. Democracy is not an efficient form of government. Making sure that everyone's voice is heard and that decisions are made after careful thought and discussion is messy. Dictatorships are more efficient because one person tells everyone else what to do.

  4. I agree, but what in fact do you think this teacher means by "institutional" factors?
