In the first paper, two politicians decide whether to follow what they believe the public wants or choose the option that secures their private gain. The public only rewards a politician when a policy is implemented, or an action that coincides with the public decision is chosen. Politicians with good decision-making abilities, under sufficiently high policy rewards and moderate private benefit, take the action that generates a public benefit, implementing the popular policy. Politicians with very poor decision-making abilities, give sufficiently high policy rewards, choose to implement a policy regardless of what the public want. Only popular policies are passed for salient issues.
