Abstract

In this paper, we present a microfounded theory of multi-candidate political competition taking an “industrial organization” perspective of politics. The analytical framework is shown to be flexible enough to address several applications on the topics of special interest politics, coalition formation in the legislature in proportional elections, and redistribution under alter-native electoral rules.
