Campaign finance: Does money in politics matter?


A Zoom link will be emailed to registrants prior to the event. 

Date & time

Feb 25, 2021, 4:30-6:00 pm EST


This is a Virtual Event.

Join Rick Hall, professor of public policy and professor of political science, for an engaging conversation on campaign finance. All Ford School alumni and students are invited.

Spending on federal elections has accelerated rapidly over the last decade, with the total in 2020 more than doubling than the previous high. But does the money make any difference? Does it influence the outcomes of elections or the decisions of legislators post-election? If so, what can be done about it? 

Professor Hall will give an overview of the topic and attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a lively Q & A, followed by breakout sessions with fellow alumni and students to further discuss the topic in detail.
