A startling new political science study concludes that corporate interests and mega wealthy individuals control U.S. policy to such a degree that “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”
The startling study, titled “Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens,” is slated to appear in an upcoming issue of Perspectives on Politics and was authored by Princeton University Professor Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Professor Benjamin Page. An early draft can be found here.

“The hotel is, of course, an ideal place for cerebral brooding; hotels are by their nature in-between. It is where you sleep, but it is not your home. You are a guest without a host, surrounded by scores of strangers, hanging up their clothes in the room next door, as close as family.”
Maggie Lange on Lost in Translation, E. M. Forster’s Lucy Honeychurch, and women moping in hotels.
