9780804791564: Capitalism v. Democracy: Money in Politics and the Free Market Constitution

As of the latest national elections, it costs approximately $1 billion to become president, $10 million to become a Senator, and $1 million to become a Member of the House. High-priced campaigns, an elite class of donors and spenders, superPACs, and increasing corporate political power have become the new normal in American politics. In Capitalism v. Democracy, Timothy Kuhner explains how these conditions have corrupted American democracy, turning it into a system of rule that favors the wealthy and marginalizes ordinary citizens. Kuhner maintains that these conditions have corrupted capitalism as well, routing economic competition through political channels and allowing politically powerful companies to evade market forces. The Supreme Court has brought about both forms of corruption by striking down campaign finance reforms that limited the role of money in politics. Exposing the extreme economic worldview that pollutes constitutional interpretation, Kuhner shows how the Court became the architect of American plutocracy. Capitalism v. Democracy offers the key to understanding why corporations are now citizens, money is political speech, limits on corporate spending are a form of censorship, democracy is a free market, and political equality and democratic integrity are unconstitutional constraints on money in politics. Supreme Court opinions have dictated these conditions in the name of the Constitution, as though the Constitution itself required the privatization of democracy. Kuhner explores the reasons behind these opinions, reveals that they form a blueprint for free market democracy, and demonstrates that this design corrupts both politics and markets. He argues that nothing short of a constitutional amendment can set the necessary boundaries between capitalism and democracy.

About the Author:

Timothy K. Kuhner is Associate Professor at Georgia State University College of Law. He teaches mainly in the areas of international and comparative law. Before moving to Atlanta, Tim spent three years as Associate Professor of Anglo-American Law at the University of Navarra in Spain. During this time, he researched the role of money in politics in Western European democracies. Educated at Bowdoin College and Duke Law School, but inspired by foreign viewpoints, Tim brings a wide-ranging, critical perspective to the study of democratic integrity.

Review:

“This book made me realize just how dangerous supreme courts can be for matters of inequality and democracy.” —Thomas Piketty, author of Capital in the Twenty-First Century, Paris School of Economics

"Convincing...impressive...timely." The Harvard Law Review, April 10, 2015. (Full review from the Harvard Law Review: "America depends on two foundational institutions — democracy and capitalism. Although each is based on values central to American ideals, the interaction of these institutions can be mutually corrosive. In Capitalism v. Democracy, Professor Timothy Kuhner convincingly shows that by blurring the line between economic and democratic values and rationalities, the legal regime governing money in politics has made this corrosion manifest. Professor Kuhner’s impressive book brings economic and political theory to bear on the evolution of the constitutional law of democracy, which he argues not only permits but 'amplifie[s]' the substitution of democratic values for free-market notions of economic competition in the political sphere (p. xi). The upshot of subjecting economic competition to a regime of constitutional rights is the loss not only of democracy but also of capitalism: innovation-producing economic competition is neglected amid battles over political influence. Kuhner ultimately determines that '[t]he free market theory now governing the law of democracy is so comprehensive and absolute' that only a constitutional amendment or a change in the Court’s composition could properly separate politics from economics (p. 93). Professor Kuhner’s timely book will interest scholars and reformers alike.") 128 Harv. L. Rev. 1894 (2015)

"Timothy Kuhner is one of today's most important young legal thinkers. Bringing a highly sophisticated understanding of both law and economics to bear on the critical relationship between democracy and the 21st century marketplace, Capitalism v. Democracy avoids easy answers and empty slogans. A must-read for anyone concerned with the health of American constitutional democracy, regardless of political inclinations."—Jefferson Powell, Duke University School of Law

"This powerfully written work teaches us a fundamental lesson about American politics today: that the demand for reform is not partisan. From the Right and Left, Kuhner shows why the rules that corrupt both democracy and capitalism must change."—Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law School

"After Citizens United and McCutcheon, it is essential to think about the relationship of money to politics and the rights of corporations in our constitutional democracy. Timothy Kuhner has written a brilliant examination of these issues. All concerned with American democracy (which should be all of us) need to read this insightful book about political power at a time when money, and the corporations that possess it, have increasing influence."—Erwin Chemerinsky, University of California, Irvine School of Law

"As informed and informative as it is thoughtful and thought-provoking, Capitalism v. Democracy: Money in Politics and the Free Market Constitution is a minor masterpiece of political science and judicial scholarship. A seminal contribution to academic library collections, Capitalism v. Democracy is exceptionally well-written, organized, and presented, making it ideal for the non-specialist general reader seeking a better and non-partisan understanding of the impact money has on democracy and the American political system."—Jack Mason, Midwest Book Review

"Law professor Timothy Kuhner has written an exhaustive, learned analysis of the Supreme Court's campaign finance jurisprudence, drawing on legal, political science, and economics perspectives. It is at the same time a sustained, passionate polemic against the contributions of the Roberts Court to that jurisprudence...The book is essential for those interested in election law or campaign finance reform, and makes useful contributions in the fields of political economy and democratic theory." Daniel Hoffman, Law and Politics Book Review

Descripción Stanford Law Books. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 376 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 1.1in.As of the latest national elections, it costs approximately 1 billion to become president, 10 million to become a Senator, and 1 million to become a Member of the House. Despite recent attempts at campaign finance reform, high-priced campaigns, superPACs, and the insatiable political influence machine have become the new normal in American politics. In Capitalism v. Democracy, Timothy Kuhner explains how skyrocketing elections costs, corporate political power, and the diminishing role of citizens of limited economic means has corrupted American democracy, turning it into a system of rule by and in the interest of the wealthy. Kuhner holds the Supreme Court responsible for instigating an often invisible turf war between the free market economy and democracy, exposing and documenting the extreme economic ideology in the Court that has polluted constitutional interpretation. Capitalism v. Democracy offers the key to understanding how corporations are now citizens, money is political speech, limits on corporate spending are a form of censorship, democracy is a free market, and political equality and democratic integrity are unconstitutional constraints on money in politics. Through the dynamic investigation of various court decisions, Kuhner shows how the Supreme Court has turned American democracy into a market in which average citizens lack political power. He exposes what it means for capitalism to govern democracy, and demonstrates why this design corrupts both politics and markets. Kuhner argues that nothing short of a constitutional amendment will limit the role of money in politics, which should be desired by those who wish to protect capitalism and preserve democracy.
