Crony Capitalism:  Unhealthy Relations Between Business and Government

October 14, 2015

Crony Capitalism: Unhealthy Relations Between Business and Government, focuses on the growing public perception of a crony form of capitalism in America, and discusses the three interconnected trends that we believe are primarily responsible for distorting our economic system: a rise in the size and scope of government, campaign costs, and lobbying.

The report also highlights the numerous ways in which government-private sector transactions have reduced economic efficiency at the expense of the public interest. The final section explores solutions that would curb the power of vested interests and restore the market-driven motivation of American free enterprise that has served the country so well over its storied history.
