SCOTUS

Capitalism v. Democracy

Sep 15, 2014

  In the new book, Capitalism v. Democracy, law professor Timothy Kuhner looks to offer the keys to understanding why corporations are now citizens, money is political speech, limits on corporate spending are a form of censorship, democracy is a free market, and political equality and democratic integrity are unconstitutional constraints on money in politics.

Kuhner says Supreme Court opinions have dictated these conditions in the name of the Constitution and he explores the reasons behind these opinions, reveals that they form a blueprint for free market democracy, and demonstrates that this design corrupts both politics and markets.

Timothy Kuhner is Associate Professor at Georgia State University College of Law and we welcome him to The Roundtable this morning.

  Several important cases could be making their way to the Supreme Court.

In today’s Congressional Corner, Union College political science professor Brad Hays tells WAMC’s Alan Chartock what he has his eye on.

  The final days of the Supreme Court’s term were a flurry of high-profile cases.

In today’s Congressional Corner, Union College political science professor Brad Hays tells WAMC’s Alan Chartock about some of the key decisions.

Stephen Gottlieb: The Anti-Union Court

Jul 1, 2014

The Court decided yesterday in Harris v. Quinn that at least some of the employees who work under a collective bargaining agreement don't have to share in the costs of negotiating that agreement. The Court says it violated their First Amendment rights. How many unions and employees it will apply to is still unclear but this is not the first move the Roberts Court has made in that direction.[i] Sometimes the patterns matter much more than the individual decisions, whether good or bad.
