1. What kind of success did Africa have with governments that wielded great power over the different African economies?
There was no success in Africa because of the government that wielded a huge amount of power. The reasons why there was no success is because copper became expensive and, more and more money was taken away by the dictator.
2. What are some of the major arguments advanced the public choice school of economics?
One of the major arguments is voting. Because one would not always get everything they want from politicians: sometimes but rarely would happen but mostly get things you don’t agree on. For an example, person one claims that he is going to create more jobs, lower taxes, and the like yet, is 70% of what you agree and like. While, person twi claims he is going to stop wars , give out healthcare, and the like if in office however, is 30% of what you agree and like. Another is about government. My reason being is that people believe that government is their friend and helper (servant) . When government too has interest of it own. The majority of people tend to get this confuse. My reason being is because the people in the government are like us : they are humans too. But this with power over regular people.
3. what are front-loading and political engineering?
Front-loading and political engineering are some of the military production.Front- loading is where the military and/or government lies about the technical requirements and takes one money before it is done or tested. political engineering is the strategy of awarding contracts in as many different congressional in districts as possible. Then they make voters (people ) and congressional incumbents dependent on their money(military money) , by doing so they (pentagon’s political engineers) put pressure on them to always support front-loading programs even after their prices show. this makes it easier for the military to obtain the money the money of voters and congressional incumbents.Furthermore, it makes the military greedy for more and more money.
