Corporate Political Spending

October 3, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 2:15 pm EDT

About the Program

A recent report by the Center for Political Accountability quotes sobering words from Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce: “many Americans have lost faith in core institutions – public and private alike. They don’t believe that government or business understand the challenges they face, or are willing or able to address them.” One source of such disillusionment among the public is the efforts by corporations to influence the outcome of democratic elections. Such actions not only have the potential to corrupt the political process, they may also pose a serious danger to the reputations of the corporations themselves.

The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity has invited three experts on the intersection of politics and business to discuss the increasing entanglement of these two sectors of society and the possibly devastating effects it might have on some of our most important institutions.



Moderated by DAVID ROSENBERG, Professor, Baruch College
