Campaign finance

Image of item
Book

First Edition.

Even before the controversy of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, it was clear that the nation's political campaign system is deeply flawed. With political action committees, special interest groups, and ultra-wealthy donors buying and selling candidates, Americans end up with representatives who may be more beholden to top donors than to the American people. Would campaign finance reform level the playing field and give Americans the best candidates for the job, or is it a losing proposition that we must accept? The opposing perspectives in this volume will encourage readers to make up their own minds on this polarizing issue.
