Incompatabily of Democracy and the market economy / Kittner.

Program Title:
Incompatabily of Democracy and the market economy / Kittner.
PRA Archive #: 
KZ2055
Description: 

Talk by Kittner, columnist for the New Republic. He examines how the principles of 1 person, 1 vote (democracy) run counter to the workings of a system where 1 dollar equals 1 vote (market economy). The result is that fundraising has become the prime goal of politics. The two major parties are virtually identical, Kittner argues, with both sides battling for campaign financing from big business and PACS. Lobbies have come to resemble trade shows, with candidates going to booths of potential big contributors to make promises in exchange for financial backing.|INCOMPATABILY OF DEMOCRACY AND THE MARKET ECONOMY / Kittner. - Talk by Kittner, columnist for the New Republic.
