Money and Democracy

By J.J. Goldberg

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, October 2012

Is there a Jewish ethic of campaign finance? The author argues that good governance, equality before the law, and ethical conduct by public officials are all central concerns of the Torah. A brief historical sketch of campaign finance is outlined and the author concludes that equality before the law, particularly regarding wealth and poverty, is extremely important.
