The idea that comes up over and over and drives almost everything else—is that parties can be explained in terms of the benefits they provide to the ambitious politicians who form them. This is a change from Schwartz, who assumed that politicians formed parties in order to increase the flow of benefits to their districts. Aldrich thus writes that: “the major political party is the creature of the politicians, the ambitious office seeker and the officeholder. They have created and maintained, used or abused, reformed or ignored the political party when doing so has furthered their goals and ambitions.
Schumpeter discusses parties, but his focus is on politicians. In An Economic Theory of Democracy (1957), Anthony Downs brings parties to the forefront. Democracy, he says, consists of competition between Whose Parties? 21 parties. ” Downs’s party teams have no policy preferences of their own. In competing for office, they promise and enact whatever policies maximize their chances of winning elections. The party teams were so cohesive that Downs seldom had occasion to discuss individual politicians separately from the party to which they belonged.
When they succeed, they do not hesitate to use the powers of a majority coalition against politicians in the former majority. Thus develops a system of regular party competition. Why, then, do parties form? On this account, they form because any bare majority of politicians can get a better deal for its constituents by forming a “minimum winning coalition” and keeping it together over all issues. Without the long coalition, these politicians would be subject to the uncertainty of shifting majorities; as part of a long coalition, they win on every vote.
