New article in The American Interest

I have a new article out in The American Interest that explores the cost of federal elections in a historical perspective.  I show that while 2012 was a VERY expensive election, it wasn’t even close to the cost of elections in the late 19th Century, once you account for cost relative to the size of the economy.

Check out the article here.
