Political Money: Deregulating American Politics — Selected Writings on Campaign Finance Reform

Current proposals involve increasing the regulation of campaign expenditures, further restricting campaign donations, creating ever-larger bureaucracies, using public funding for federal campaigns, and attempting to limit political speech not only through legislation but also through constitutional amendment. Through articles, Supreme Court decisions, speeches, and op-eds, Political Money challenges the view that current proposals are truly an appropriate public policy approach to campaign finance and argues that controls on campaign expenditures and contributions limit freedom of speech; that controls on the use of such resources smack of censorship; that there is no credible evidence that campaign contributions buy votes; and that more rapid and complete public disclosure is critical.
