Veto bargaining simulations
Welcome to my veto bargaining simulator. If you're here, it's probably because you have read my paper on veto bargaining, "The Item Veto's Sting." If you haven't you're still welcome to poke around, but you might have trouble figuring out what's going on.
Try these simulations:
- The big simulator. Run simulations like those in the paper. You can adjust the parameters, then let my site run 500 simulations in each of 1 through 10 dimensions. The output table looks like my results table in the paper.
- View a (single) random bargaining game. View a single interaction between the governor and legislature. You can set how many dimensions are involved. My site will randomly choose a single set of coordinates for L, G, and SQ, then calculate the outcomes of unidimensional and multidimensional bargaining. Includes charts!
- The 90th Congress simulator. Like the big simulator, but uses DW-NOMINATE scores from the 90th Congress (1967-1968) rather than drawing random ideal points from a normal distribution. Only works in 1 and 2 dimensions. Intended as a robustness check on the big simulator.
- The 111th Congress simulator. Uses DW-NOMINATE scores from the 111th Congress (2009-2010).
