In Chicago, The Fix Is In—Say People Who Can Do The Fixing
A new online survey about money, politics and corruption in Chicago targeted leaders at companies with at least a million dollars in revenue a year-- in many cases, fifty million and up. About 90 percent of respondents said yes to questions like: Are business leaders pressured to make political contributions? Or: Does Chicago have crony capitalism? Not all these potential fixers are happy with the results. Almost eighty percent said Chicago is on the wrong track.
The survey was commissioned by the Committee for Economic Development.
