This note on business-government relationships introduces pupils to the state of lobbying and campaign contributions by corporations in America. Â The note broadly defines two hypotheses as to the collision of corporate political contribution: (i) a vehicle to make possible good government; and (ii) an apparatus of special-interest capture. Â The note could be utilized to create a dialogue on these problems: (1) In a democratic capitalist society, what’s the proper role of business in government? (2) When it comes to political contributions, should corporations possess the exact same rights and obligations as people? The note also describes the various alternatives companies that are practical face on political participation, including alternatives and disclosure alternatives to participate through ideological or commerce organizations. This description could be used to support business students to come up with an aspiration for their firms’ political involvement strategies.
