Notes

  • 1 See for instructive discussions of different forms of random sampling Fishkin and Smith in this volume.
  • 2 The most elegant definition of ‘better’ is given by Budge, who suggests that policies made by direct democracy are at least closer to the median and thus the majority voter preference - no matter whether these policies are more sustainable, redistributive or in any other sense ‘better’.
