Definition

Ours is a market-driven economy functioning inside a democracy. Your job is to find ways to attach your market-driven, economically valuable idea to democracy wherever and whenever it is possible. Trust that those who wish you harm are working hard to find their points of attachment in the democracy even if you are not. This is where the imperatives of running a successful business must trump your political philosophy about whether the government should have a role in what you do.

Dr. Market’s Observation:

Before you become embroiled with a politician, you absolutely must familiarize yourself with the laws involving campaign contributions. The money goes by check to their election campaign treasurer and there are strict limits on the amount you can contribute. You are also prohibited from handing them a check in certain places and even talking to them about a contribution from their office telephone! Be very careful here. Again, your lawyer should know what you should do and you must talk to him or her about this before you do anything.
