Abstract

We argue that Frey’s proposals are utopian and impractical, focusing on four key issues: the complexity of decision-making; politicians’ and technocrats’ importance in decision making processes; reconciling the geography of political rights in a globalising world; and recognizing how power frames political discourse and outcomes.
