Reviews

'Corporations not only need to follow the 'rules of the game', they need to act responsibly and transparently in their efforts to shape the rules of the game through corporate political actions. This book points the way toward enlisting business leaders themselves in the cause of corporate political responsibility.' Ed Dolan, Senior Fellow, Niskanen Center 'This collection tackles one of the central problems of our time: namely whether, given that a significant number of corporations are already vigorously engaged political actors, firms should be required to be responsible citizens and - if so - can they be made so? Carefully researched, thoughtfully presented and eminently practical, this is a masterful introduction to a critically important subject.' Rebecca Henderson, Natty and John McArthur University Professor, Harvard University 'This book is the first of its kind on one of the most critical topics of our day: the billions of dollars in so-called 'dark money' that US companies pour into political coffers and how to create much needed transparency and accountability around these massive corporate expenditures. Lyon has gathered contributions from a broad array of experts in the field (himself included) and offers thoughtful solutions in the face of the ongoing failure of politicians and regulators to step up to this challenge. I highly recommend this book to both corporate executives and those who invest in their firms.' Allison Herren Lee, Former Acting Chair, Securities and Exchange Commission 'The great challenges of the modern era - from affordable health care, to climate change and functional democracy - are inextricably tied to profit. That makes the question at the heart of this book - the proper role of business in society - the essential stuff of our time. I can think of no better guide than Tom Lyon, one of our leading thinkers on the topic.' Auden Schendler, Senior Vice President of Sustainability at Aspen Skiing Company and author of Getting Green Done: Hard Truths from the Front Lines of the Sustainability Revolution 'As a former U.S. Congresswoman, who served on perhaps the first Campaign Finance Reform Task Force, I assure you our democracy would be enhanced if corporate campaign contributions ended and companies assumed 'political responsibility'. I have long felt that the G of ESG (Environment, Social & Governance) needed to incorporate measures of political responsibility in how corporations govern themselves. Tom Lyon and his co-authors clarify the criticality of doing so, especially at this moment in time.' Claudine Schneider, Former Congresswoman (R-R.I.) 'In a world that is overheating dangerously fast, it's no longer enough for companies to simply reduce their own social and environmental impacts. The systemic changes we need require companies to step up and use their political clout not for narrow self-interest, but to advocate for the policies that drive innovative solutions to our biggest challenges. This is the first book on this critical topic, and it brings together leading scholarly voices with accounts from the front lines by leading practitioners. This is essential reading for understanding the challenges companies will face in the decade ahead.' Andrew Winston, Sustainability strategist and best-selling author of Net Positive and Green to Gold
