The Anatomy of Campaign Finance: Money's powerful influence on US politics and policy
The power of campaign donations to shape political decisions is front and center in the 2012 presidential election. Citizens United, the Supreme Court decision that allowed corporations, mega-donors and unions to invest vast resources in candidates' campaigns, has been called an undemocratic giveaway to social and economic elites. Does their growing electoral power undermine the public interest, or simply increase the public visibility of candidates' messages and influence? What are the long-term implications for our political culture and public policy? And what are the prospects for meaningful change?
