about this item

The authors consider whether lobbying should be regulated in the European Union and how it affects free trade. They describe how imbalanced and negative lobbying may lead to corruption, subsidies, and trade barriers rather than free trade. They use rational choice theory to examine how power centralization in the EU may impact lobbying and economic growth, the risk of budget maximization and corruption problems, the case of trade in greenhouse gases to measure lobbying and the risk of cheating in the trading system, the case of green industries and their lobbying strength, countervailing lobbying among brown and green power plants and the potential waste of resources, alignment of incentives and potential coalitions among lobbying groups, and whether lobbying should be regulated and possible policy choices based on the US experience.
