Unlike so many television shows, HOUSE OF CARDS shows how politicians use their power to help themselves and their friends—not the people who elected them.

Join professor Steve Horwitz as he looks at the latest season of Netflix’s hit series and talks about how it shows us the pitfalls of bureaucratic democracy.

Viewers will learn more about public choice theory, rent-seeking behavior, psychopathic tendencies, Machiavellian inclinations, corruption, and scandal.

If you thought West Wing and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington fell short of how politicians seem to act in real life, watch on and learn why HOUSE OF CARDS isn’t as far from reality as so many people want you to think.
