Scott Davidson, Public affairs practice and lobbying inequality: Reform and regulation of the influence game

in Journal of Public Affairs 22 August 2017 (published by Wiley).

"It is reasonable to assume that all democratic systems will reflect to
some extent the economic power relationships between different classes
and groups. In particular, large corporations are cited as being able
to dominate decision‐making environments through deploying their
superior resources (Dinan & Miller, 2007). This influence of financially
motivated interests has been argued to have frustrated the wider public
interest on issues such as environmental sustainability, obesity,
alcohol abuse and Internet freedoms (Duhe & Sriramesh, 2009;
Gornall, 2014; Horten, 2013; Miller & Harkins, 2010)."
