Making Contact - Dollarocracy: Corporate Cash in Politics

The cost of American democracy is the most expensive in the world. In the 2012 elections billions of dollars were spent on political campaigns. But there’s a growing consensus that big business and wealthy individuals are buying power. Authors John Nichols and Robert McChesney have a name for the state we’re in: Dollarocracy.

Thanks to Pirate TV for use of their recording.

Featuring:  

John Nichols, Washington, DC correspondent, Nation magazine; Robert W. McChesney, Gutgsell Endowed Professor in the Department of Communication
at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
