Fair Elections

In the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to remove limits on campaign spending, Congress will consider "Fair Election" legislation. Harry Kamen, former chairman and CEO of Metlife, speaks about a letter (PDF of the letter) to Congress signed by multiple CEOs asking for the legislation’s passing, and Arn Pearson, Vice President for programs at Common Cause, looks at the legislation’s details.

Then, Lawrence Lessig, Director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics and the author of Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy (Penguin Press, 2008), examines the potentially devastating relationship of money and politics.
