New President

Having received 200,000 more first preference votes than his nearest rival, Michael D. Higgins will surely be declared the winner of the Presidential Election later today.

Here is his last talk in the Dáil. He talks about the exercise of parliamentary democracy, the rationality of markets, individuality and inequality, and the nature of republicanism.

Congratulations to him, his family, and his party.

(No, this is not an endorsement.)

A political scientist. Might be a while before we have a behavioural economist in the Aras.
