“When people are focusing on the negatives and saying ‘it’s never been like this,’ quite frankly…it’s always been like this, we just didn’t have access to information the way we do now,” Professor Alan Wiseman says about people being pessimistic about problems in the United States. Wiseman is Chair of the Department of Political Science and is the Co-Director of the Center for Effective Lawmaking — is a research institution that establishes and tracks legislative effectiveness of politicians in congress. We talk about legislative data, why effectiveness is important and the Jefferson-Hamilton debate about government structure.
