Readers of this blog probably know Freakonomics is one of the podcasts that I listen to. They recently released a new podcast that touches on politics… specifically, the duopoly (dual monopoly) in politics between the Republicans and Democrats. Everyone should have an interest in politics since the government can directly influence the daily lives of each citizen both positively as well as negatively.
This podcast makes the case of why this duopoly needs to be broken up. From collusion to keep other 3rd party candidates out of elections to partisan legislation through Congress and the White House, I hope all the readers of this blog seriously listens to this Freakonomics podcast.
