Voters are faced with bundled choices, they vote infrequently, no individual's vote will affect the election, voters have little incentive to be highly informed about the candidates' policy positions, and the winning candidate is not obliged to deliver on his promises.

This audio Mises Daily is narrated by Steven Ng.
