Oligarchy Democratic Party Style

January 9th, 2012
in econ_news

EconintersectNaked Capitalism has posted a comprehensive graphic that shows 105 corporate executives who have also filled appointive positions in revolving doorgovernment.  Of the total 97 were appointed by Democrats.  This makes the selection process suspect of being highly partisan and calls out for similar partisan activity to identify Republicans involved in the “revolving door” nature of the corporate/government oligarchy.

But, leaving the partisan issue aside, the infographic after the continuation break serves as strong testimony to the reason that many proclaim the government has been captured by corporate interests.
