Sample chapter from Tim and Gene’s edited volume on campaign finance reform

Democracy by the People (Cambridge University Press 2018, co-edited with Eugene Mazo) is now out in paperback and hardcover. Attached is Tim’s chapter, entitled The Third Coming of American Plutocracy. It discusses how government of, by and for the wealthy has ruled America twice before in our history. Today’s plutocrats and systemic corruption are just the latest incarnation of an old tyranny.

  1. Hi Tim

    Your analysis and writing is penetrating and inspiring. Can I share this with journalist Matt Shand from Fairfax who is one of a number of journalists who are concerned at our own Kiwi plutocracy.
