Professor Ryan Hübert and Ph.D. student Jonathan Colner featured in AJPS for their article, "How Hiring from Special Interests Reduces Their Influence".

Abstract: "Using a formal model . . . [o]ur analysis provides two core insights. First, when an individual from a special interest group goes into government, this can paradoxically reduce the special interest's influence over public policy. Second, this individual has an endogenous incentive to enter government even though doing so weakens the special interest, whose preferences the individual shares."
