    In fairness, I didn’t object to the last argument from the irrationality of voting. A commenter named ‘B’ posted the list of citations.

    There’s a key difference between my objection and B’s. B’s objection takes the model for granted and gives evidence that the formula produces positive results often. I object to the presupposition of the model, namely, that individual instrumental rationality is the correct model of the reasoning behind the practice of voting. Not all rationality is instrumental and action coordination (pace game theory) could not get off the ground if all rationality were instrumental.

    I am surprised Baumann was able to go 2 hours without mentioning Joey Pankake. I am actually kind of upset about it too, I enjoy the Pankake references.

    But on a more serious note, I love the podcasts and this one did not disappoint. Great work guys

    Good to know I’m not the only one who makes extreme threats about potential trades and signings made by teams I love, spent a lot of time laughing my ass off. Really enjoyed it well done.
