Is it rational to vote? Many economists say no – this week’s guest on the FIRE podcast says yes. Andrew Gelman is a professor of statistics and political science and is director of the Applied Statistics Center at Columbia University, and has written several papers on the rationality of voting. On this week’s FIRE podcast, Gelman talks with host Arin Greenwood about when and why it can make sense to vote.
