Buchanan and a quote

I am slowly moving beyond Weber. I am reading a work by James M. Buchanan - The Calculus of Consent: Logical Foundations of Constitutional Democracy.

I have just started, so no lecture today. Just a quote before I sign off:

If you can discover a better way of life than office-holding
for your future rulers, a well-governed city becomes a possibility.
For only in such a state will those rule who are truly rich, not
in gold, but in the wealth that makes happiness--a good and wise
-- Plato,
"The Republic"
