dc.description.abstractWe analyze the topical question of how the compensation of elected politicians affects the setof citizens choosing to run. To this end, we develop a sparse and tractable citizen-candidatemodel of representative democracy with ability differences, informative campaigning andpolitical parties. Our results suggest that primaries, campaign costs and rewards havepreviously overlooked interactions that should be studied in a unified framework. Surprisingly,increasing the reward may lower the average candidate quality when the campaigning costsare sufficiently high.en_US
