A few big interests looking after themselves.

WHO ARE THE CRONIES IN MODESTO?

 

Crony capitalism is a term describing an economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials.

 

It may be exhibited by favoritism in the distribution of legal permits, government grants, special tax breaks, or other forms of state interventionism.

 

The real issue isn’t the government’s size. It’s whom government is for.

 

Much of government is no longer working for the vast majority it’s intended to serve.

 

If government were responding to the public’s interest instead of the moneyed interests, it would be providing more support for communities, families, and individuals who need it the most.
