Beschreibung:

Access Points develops a new theory--Access Point Theory--about how democratic institutions influence policy outcomes, arguing that the more points of access institutions provide to interest groups, the cheaper lobbying is, and the more lobbying will occur. This creates more complex and biased policy as policymakers insert specific provisions that benefit lobbyists. Access Point Theory explains bias and complexity in trade and tax policy and environmental and banking regulations around the world, and the book provides scholars with a powerful tool to explain how political institutions matter and why countries implement the policies they do.

Access Points develops a new theory about how democratic institutions influence policy outcomes. Access Point Theory argues that the more points of access that institutions provide to interest groups, the cheaper lobbying will be, and, thus, the more lobbying will occur. This will lead to more complex policy, as policymakers insert specific provisions to benefit special interests, and, if one side of the debate has a lobbying advantage, to more biased policy, as the advantaged side is able to better take advantage of the cheaper lobbying. This book then uses Access Point Theory to explain why some countries have more protectionist and more complex trade policies than other; why some countries have stronger environmental and banking regulations than others; and why some countries have more complicated tax codes than others. In policy area after policy area, this book finds that more access points lead to more biased and more complex policy. Access Points provides scholars with a powerful tool to explain how political institutions matter and why countries implement the policies they do.
