The book examines the resulting informational and structural constraints on public policymaking and their strategic use by business lobbyists." "Patrick Bernhagen suggests that, while democracy in capitalist society is vulnerable to a pro-business policy bias, better informed policymakers can redress the balance of power with business and improve on bringing policies in line with public preferences. His analysis identifies the institutional and behavioural factors affecting business' informational power. The Political Power of Business will be of particular interest to students and researchers of political science, policymaking and business studies."--Jacket." ;
