A CITIZEN LEGISLATURE (with Michael Phillips) outlines a bold solution to the election-finance corruption of American electoral politics – by reviving, with modern sampling techniques, the ancient Athenian practice of selecting representatives by random lot. As timid campaign-finance reforms are repeatedly tried and predictably fail, this radical solution gains in appeal.
