What was the relationship between big business and government in the 1920s?
relationship between big business and government in the 1920s? Big business has too much power in Washington, according to 90 percent of Americans in a December 2005 poll. Every week, headlines reveal some scandal involving politicians, lobbyists, [ corporate cash, and allegations of bribes. CEOs get face time with senators, cabinet secretaries, and presidents. Lawmakers and bureaucrats take
laps through the revolving door between government and corporate lobbying. Whatever goes on behind closed doors between the CEOs and the senators can't be good or the doors would not be closed. ]
