The Cost of Democracy
Democracy has no price, but it does have an operating cost.
Financing election campaigns is a debated issue and adequately regulating such financing is one of the great challenges for all democracies, including in Latin America.
Drawing on experiences in a number of Latin American countries, this book offers a comprehensive and sober analysis of political financing practices in the region. It discusses the risks that current practices entail for democracy, and the best approaches to regulating the role of money in politics.
