SUMMARY:Median voter theorem and Why it Fails in Practice
DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Soumyajit Pyne\n\nAbstract: \nThe Median Voter Theorem
(MVT) is a cornerstone of modern political science theory. It states that
in a single peaked preference profile\, the top choice of the median vote
r is the Condorcet winner. So\, the dominant strategy for a candidate is t
o be the top choice of the median voter. However in practice\, often the m
edian voter's top choice is not the winner. To understand this we will go
through the paper "Polarization\, abstention\, and the median voter theore
m" - by Fu\, Sirianni\, Jones. Later I will show some generalization of th
e model used in that paper and analyze some computational aspects of that
model.\n
