On December 2 and 3, FairVote Minnesota is hosting Katherine Gehl, of Gehl Foods, and Michael Porter, of Harvard Business School, for a pair of public events titled “Politics is Harming U.S. Competitiveness: Can Election Reform Fix It?” Ms. Gehl and Mr. Porter will speak about the impact of political gridlock on business and economic growth in the U.S., referring to their groundbreaking paper, “Why Competition in the Politics Industry is Failing America — a strategy for reinvigorating our democracy.” Their work specifically calls out Ranked Choice Voting as a solution to the political gridlock and hyper-partisanship that has prevented progress on issues that would support business and economic growth.
The Sunday, December 2 event is a fundraiser benefiting FairVote Minnesota, taking place at 3:00 p.m. at the Cowles Center, 528 Hennepin Ave South in Minneapolis. On Monday, December 3 at 10:00 a.m. Ms. Gehl and Mr. Porter will speak at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management for an event cosponsored by Carlson and the Humphrey School of Public Affairs in partnership with FairVote Minnesota.
