Miller to Talk Money and Politics at Policy Forum

Dallas (September 13, 1999) – The political market place is so rigged to protect incumbents that it amounts to a monopoly. But, conventional campaign finance reform proposals to "fix" the problem will only give incumbents an even greater advantage over challengers. So argues former Reagan budget director, James C. Miller III, who will be the featured speaker at the next NCPA/Dallas Fed Policy Forum on Wednesday, Sept. 15.

Miller, who is currently a fellow at the Hoover Institution and a John M. Olin Distinguished Fellow at the Citizens for a Sound Economy, will discuss his book Monopoly Politics, and it's solutions for reforming politics to make it more competitive and responsive to voters.
