Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Most parliamentary systems have endogenous election timing, a system where the Prime Minister is free to call elections when he or she thinks the time is right. Despite the huge advantage one might expect this creates, Prime Ministers frequently lose. The author proposes an informational theory that explains when leaders call for elections and the consequences of their decisions. The author explains why leaders find it difficult to profit from their ability to call elections when they are popular and the opposition is weak.
