Political donation changes favour the rich and increase the risk of corruption

31 May 2005
Description

Joo-Cheong Tham argues that recent government proposals to increase the threshold for disclosing the identity of political donors, and to raise the ceiling for tax-deductibility, would advantage wealthy political donors and further increase their political access vis à vis the less well off, reducing political equality. Further, raising the disclosure threshold would increase the level of secrecy and the potential for corruption and undue influence.
