Lawrence Lessig on Corporations

 

 


We need a new law to take on Wall Street

Q: A supporter of President Obama could argue, the problems you raise about partisanship didn't prevent Dodd-Frank from being implemented, all kinds of reforms over the last four years.

LESSIG: On Dodd-Frank, look, every Democrat is talking now about how we have to go back and have a new law to take on Wall Street. But you can't take on Wall Street until you change the way campaigns are funded, because the biggest funder of campaigns in Congress is Wall Street.
