Example text

Economic explanations of political action, its distributive effects, and social costs entered the research agenda in the 1960s under the topics of public choice and rent seeking. In this strand of literature, policy outcomes mainly result from interest groups’ efforts to exert pressure on governmental activities through money and information (Austen-Smith, 1997), a perspective which is particularly relevant for resourceful organizations such as business groups. In this context lobbying mainly refers to the strategic transmission of information between interest groups and governmental bodies, and involves also the collection and verification of information.

Although these findings cannot necessarily be transferred to other countries where more stable patterns exist, they are of experimental value and are still useful in analyzing these dynamic processes. Analyses showed that economic growth increased associational foundings, while government actions had no or mixed effects on the vital rates in the population of trade associations. Increasing labor union activities, in contrast, led to mergers between business associations. Within-population dynamics also have major impacts on the composition of trade association populations.

Opposite effects originate from the logic of influence. Public authorities favor interaction with a few business associations that represent multiple interests and thus create incentives for their formation. Among these incentives are institutionalized access to the decisionmaking process or state recognition and licensing. Business associations equipped with these political resources may offer them to their members and receive compliance in their turn. Under these circumstances the internal and external organizations of interests are functionally differentiated and there exists an integrated and hierarchically ordered system of business associations.
