Who Decides?

States as Laboratories of Constitutional Experimentation

Jeffrey S. Sutton

  • Looks at how American federalism allows the states to serve as laboratories of innovation for protecting individual liberty and property rights as well as structural guarantees
  • Compares state-level governments with the federal government
  • Reveals an increasingly stark divide between the ever-more democratic nature of state governments and the ever-less democratic nature of the federal government over time
