Abstract

We investigate the extent to which legislators can use institutional design to adapt the the challenges presented by the complexity of policy making. In so doing, we produce new and more general conclusions about the consequences of institutional design for democratic decision-making and conclude that, in general, democracy can work.

Keywords: institutional design, law-making, policy making, democracy, bureaucracy, acountability
