Golden Rule: The Investment Theory of Politics

Interesting documentary about a very provocative theory. The Investment Theory of Politics essentially says that elections can be thought of as times when the moneyed and the powerful invest in politicians and legislation. Also some interesting quotes from Adam Smith who was, it should not be forgotten, a moral philosopher before he was a political economist. As the Germans say, “economics is moral philosophy”.
