Southeast Michigan Chapter Event: Does Money Corrupt Politics?
March 16, 2016 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Detroit Beer Company
1529 Broadway Street, Detroit,
Does money corrupt American politics? Should we support reforms that limit giving or restrict lobbying? For years now, activists have decried the influence of money in politics and advocated for restrictions on campaign donations, political ads and spending, and lobbyists. Yet while such activists may be well-meaning, many such reforms have proven in practice to be more harmful than helpful to the political process, damaging transparency and making political expression costly. In this talk, University of Michigan PhD Candidates Jesse Crosson and James Strickland will share research from political science and economics that supports the simple principle that more speech is always better than less.
Join us for this dynamic discussion and evening to meet and network with other professionals from across Michigan. As always, we will have lots of food and your first drink is on us!
