The Cost of Democracy
Voting
We’re talking about the influence of money on politics. We’ve seen the mighty Super PAC at work in this presidential race, with millionaires heaping money on their candidate of choice. With all this money flying around, Harvard Law professor Lawrence Lessig said the best chance for campaign finance reform was Americans Elect, a platform that promised to get a candidate on the ballot - a candidate with no ties to major money. Last week, Americans Elect failed to deliver a candidate. We’ll ask Lessig what this says about dollars and democracy.

GUESTS:
  Lawrence Lessig, director of the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics at Harvard University, and a professor of law at Harvard Law School
