The Influence Machine

Hosted by

Last week, The New York Times revealed that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, America’s largest trade group, has been fighting for big tobacco worldwide. According to our guest, it’s just one example of how the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has become a political juggernaut for many corporate causes that may go against the public good. What was once a low-key business advocacy group is now a massive lobbying organization with interests around the world.
