Abstract

Democratic politics needs resources, including money. But money tends to corrode democratic politics. These two truths are in tension; regulation is needed to reduce that tension. Besides the reality that parties need resources, small scale private donations are a form of political association. Larger pools of money can also be a way for ideological or other interest groups to practically exercise freedom of expression.
