    Legislator community structure, in ArXiV

    There's a lot of gold in the ArXiV RSS feeds. See this one, for instance: Community Structure in Congressional Cosponsorship Networks analyzes a social network where actors are members of the American Congress and Senate, and links are established if they have co-sponsored a law:
    This analysis yields an explicit and conceptually clear measure of political polarization, demonstrating a sharp increase in partisan polarization which preceded and then culminated in the 104th Congress

    Which only proves that we still have to learn a thing or two about democracy from America. A similar analysis in Spain would be meaningless: the governing party and its allies vote for whatever they propose, and the opposition against. Sometimes there's an abstention or two, if the thing is really controversial. And that's that.

    I don't completely agree. I think the Spanish political system was designed to give strength to the parties' rulers instead to congressmen because in the Transition that was necessary in other to reach deals at the higgest level. Maybe 30 years later, that system is less useful.

    I'm not saying it's good or bad, just different. Completely.
