MONDAY - "Capitalism v. Democracy: Money in Politics and the Free Market Constitution" [Lynne Atkinson]

Sun, 09/21/2014 - 23:45

Lecture by Timothy K. Kuhner
Monday, Sept 22
7:30 pm
Kresge Auditorium, Visual Arts Center


Timothy K. Kuhner is an assistant professor of law at Georgia State University, where he teaches courses on international law, comparative law, human rights, campaign finance and alternative dispute resolution. He graduated magna cum laude from Bowdoin College in 1998, where he was awarded highest honors in sociology and the Romance Languages Prize, and received his J.D. and LL.M., magna cum laude, from Duke University School of Law in 2004.

Kuhner will discuss his new book Capitalism v. Democracy (Stanford University Press, 2014).

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, 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.

Kuhner’s talk is sponsored by the John C. Donovan Lecture Fund, which was established at Bowdoin College in 1990 by family members, professional colleagues and friends of John C. Donovan. Donovan served as Bowdoin’s DeAlva Stanwood Alexander Professor of Government from 1965 until his death in 1984. Established through the leadership of Shepard Lee, Bowdoin Class of 1947, this fund is used to support lectures in the field of political science.

Free and open to the public.
