(1) John J. Higgins & Barb Adams, The Problem with the Corporate Model
Come January, we’ll have a change of regime in Washington…or will we? According to Lee Drutman, Senior Fellow in the Political Reform Program at the New America Foundation and author of The Business of America is Lobbying: How Corporations Became Politicized and Politics Became More Corporate, corporate lobbyists (and, thus, corporations) have “conquered American democracy” and “The self-reinforcing quality of corporate lobbying has come to overwhelm every other potentially countervailing force.”
Not good news for those hoping to rein in the power of corporations over government. But corporations didn’t always have so much power in Washington, and “the evolution of business lobbying from a sparse reactive force into a ubiquitous and increasingly proactive one is among the most important transformations in American politics in the last 40 years,” according to Drutman. The new corporate model has changed how businesses interact with the government, from once seeking to keep government out of business to now bringing government in as a “partner” and using the American system for their benefit, resulting in trade deals by the corporations, for the corporations.
