The Future of Campaign Finance and its Intersection with Performance and the Public Sphere
By Jonathan Molina
Final Project: An essay on “Democracy Vouchers and Campaign Finance in American Politics,” that critiques the current model of campaign finance as an un-democratic stand-in for participation, suggesting instead that democracy dollars or equal vouchers for all voters would level the playing field and provide an opportunity to expand forums and other performance sites for more robust and participatory deliberation and debate.
