Finance and Political Participation

Peter Bearse, Ph.D. [Economics]


This essay identifies and discusses the factors and forces arising from finance that influence peoples’ political participation.

We find that both factors and forces at work are significantly adverse to political participation at all levels. The prime intermediate factor here is economic inequality, which is the subject of a companion essay published earlier.
