Compromising Welfare

The US Constitution includes many checks and balances that necessitate the ruling party to compromise with the opposition. The study by Prof Deniz OKAT looks into the nominations to the judiciary and found that confirmation in the Senate is more likely and faster when the President compromises on the strength of the candidate. This suggests that the system of checks and balances comes with a price.
