Welcome to the National Dialogue on Money and Politics, hosted by Information Renaissance with support from National Issues Forums Research. This non-partisan Dialogue involved 250 citizens, governmental policy makers, and representatives of businesses and organizations. A summary report is now available online.

The Dialogue was organized around three major policy choices:

Choice 1: Reform the Campaign Fund-Raising System
Choice 2: Rein in Lobbyists and Politicians
Choice 3: Publicize Political Donations, Don't Regulate Them

These choices are developed in an Issue Book on Money and Politics provided by Public Agenda for National Issues Forums.

National Dialogues are a part of Information Renaissance's Network Democracy program. This program seeks to expand opportunities for education and public participation in governmental activities through use of the Internet. Information Renaissance and the National Issues Forums do not advocate a specific solution or point of view.
