This week’s discussion is about a topic called rational ignorance. It is a fun topic to talk about, especially in today’s political landscape. This is a very controversial topic, so keep your Econ “thinking caps” on and keep it in the academic setting.
Remember that the intent of understanding Rational Ignorance is to help explain, via economic thinking, why voter turnout is generally so low. Or why people are very uninformed and rely on personal feelings to make political judgments.
