More Description

The role of money in the U.S. electoral process has become more and more controversial in recent years. Following the Buckley ruling and other legislation in 1996, candidates and political parties are free to raise virtually unlimited "soft" money, making money perhaps the most significant factor in a campaign's success. In "Moey Rules," Anthony Gierzynski theorizes that, under our current system of financing elections, our political process has tilted too far in favor of political "freedom," at the expense of political "equality." Gierzynski examines the historical roots of the campaign finance dilemma, demonstrates its effects on the local, state, and national levels, and projects the long-term outcomes for American politics.
