New Study: United States no longer a Democracy

| November 5, 2014 | 4 Replies

Is the U.S. government following the will of the People? The answer is no, according to a new study:

Asking “[w]ho really rules?” researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page argue that over the past few decades America’s political system has slowly transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy, where wealthy elites wield most power.

Using data drawn from over 1,800 different policy initiatives from 1981 to 2002, the two conclude that rich, well-connected individuals on the political scene now steer the direction of the country, regardless of or even against the will of the majority of voters.

I believe I posted this once before, but it’s that time of year. Many years ago a friend of mine (Michael Harty) and I created a two-panel Christmas card/cartoon revealing what Santa did most of the year.
