Federalism and Floating Cities

From Charlie Smith ’15:

A Discussion on Federalism and Floating Cities with Professor Elvin Lim

What is the function of federalism in US politics? Can competition between governments make them more responsive to the needs of their citizens? Could floating communities in international waters provide this sort of competition?

Come join Students for a Free Society for a discussion on the role of Federalism in US politics and its potential (if any) for promoting good governance. Professor Lim will be with us to discuss the “right to exit” and the potential for competition between governments to produce better services. We will also discuss the work of the Sea Steading Institute in attempting to make floating cities in international waters to innovate in the provision of government services.
