Democracy of Pressure Groups
Abstract· The report contains positive references to profit, capital, liberty and freedom (including free-market economy), and the struggle of the world’s poor in the developing world – if we dared, and cared to ask them, that is, to achieve these. These references might be too sacrilegious to be tasteful to some. · The report attempts to show the weaknesses of the activism of the pressure groups, and how empty their rhetoric is. This is of course apart from their unethical conduct in trying to force their views on others. The report refutes comments made against businesses, globalization, privatization, and trade deregulation. At the same time, the need of government in providing property rights is emphasized. · Hope this report will leave a feeling that the biggest reason for differences between the prosperity of a rich and a poor country is neither racial nor cultural, but the system of law and order, property rights, and freedom of action in private, economic and social lives; which work as catalysts to prosperity, growth and the fight against poverty .
