Are checks and balances enough to constrain ambitious executives?

Join the CLEAR Intitiative in conversation with Alexander Bolton (Emory) and Sharece Thrower (Vanderbilt) as they discuss their book Checks in the Balance: Legislative Capacity and the Dynamics of Executive Power.

Checks in the Balance presents a new theory of separation of powers that brings legislative capacity to the fore, explaining why Congress and state legislatures must possess both the opportunities and the means to constrain presidents and governors—and why, without these tools, executive power will prevail.
