Abstract: A central part of Jürgen Habermas’s recent political and legal philosophy is the idea that, in a constitutional democracy, constitutionalism and democracy must be co-original, that is, mutually enabling rather than constraining. Among other things, this thesis serves to make sure that the addressees of the laws can view themselves simultaneously as the authors of the laws. However, there remains a gap between constitutionalism and democracy; even if there is a relation of mutual imbrication, the two cannot be reconciled. As a result, the relationship between them is undecidable in Derrida’s sense of the term. The deconstructive reading of Habermas in this paper focuses on the ways in which Habermas seeks to circumvent the constitutive gap between constitutionalism and democracy. In addition, I consider the implications for how we think about the politics of constitutional democracy from a deconstructive perspective.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This paper considers the types of governments that less developed nations can use to raise employment even in fiscal crisis. One effective option is adult vocational education which is both cheap and supported by significant transnational governments. In principle, such programs should fail because high labor surpluses and low reservation wages facilitate employer on the job training, reducing the impact of government training in raising human capital stocks per se. The surprise twist is that graduates of adult vocational training who are self employed market their way into economic success by increasing aggregate demand for their sector. This unexpected finding is illustrated with econometric data on service sector employment in Brazil. The key lesson is that more attention needs to be paid to programs that increase self employment and less to human capital per se.

Abstract: This paper develops a simple rationalist theory explaining the political usefulness of repression/political terror. Data support two key derivations: democratic political institutions and greater societal wealth need not improve human rights.

Abstract: We consider three related problems in graph theory: determining if a directed graph has an even cycle, determining if a two edged-colored graph has an alternating colored even cycle, and determining if a directed graph has an anti-directed even cycle. We show that each of these, and two other variations, are special cases of a more general graph problem. We also show that one of these variations is NP-complete.
