AOPSSS #28 “Why Geographically-Targeted Spending Under Closed-List Proportional Representation Favors Marginal Districts”

In the twenty-eighth AOPSSS session, Amy Catalinac (NYU) & Lucia Motolinia (NYU) presented their new paper showing governing parties steer geographically-targeted spending toward marginal districts under CLPR. Gary Cox (Stanford), Matt Golder (Penn State), and Kenneth Mori McElwain (University of Tokyo) offered detailed comments about a range of theoretical, conceptual, and empirical issues. Looking forward to seeing the next version of the paper!
