This chapter warns of the dangers of continued growth, arguing that the growth of corporate lobbying is ultimately bad for business, because it undermines the problem-solving capacity of the political system necessary for a productive market economy. This chapter also lays out possible reforms, arguing that the best way to counteract the growth of corporate lobbying is to increase the policy capacity of the government and make the political fights fairer, channelling politics to solve political problems.
