The New Paradigm Reconsidered

By Bruce Ackerman


Let\u27s begin with the very idea of a \u22new paradigm\u22: are there distinctive ideas organizing our particular proposals, and if so, what are they? Our commentators profess varying degrees of skepticism, and we hope to allay their doubts with a two-part answer. The first emphasizes principle; the second is more pragmatic. We begin with a framework that isolates our basic normative concerns; we continue with an instrumental assessment of the \u22secret donation booth\u22 as a policy tool; we conclude by asking whether these principled and pragmatic perspectives provide the basis for a \u22new paradigm\u22-a distinctive and coherent approach to the problem of campaign finance
