Zephyr Teachout: Apply anti-trust rules to corporate political power

Teachout published earlier this year a paper entitled, "Corporate Rules and Political Rules: Antitrust as Campaign Finance Reform". This paper argues that antitrust legislation can be seen as a form of indirect campaign finance reform by limiting the power of corporations to influence elections. For Teachout, caps on the size of corporations must be understood in their original politico-economic sense. In her account, the cost-benefit model of monopolies ushered in by the Chicago school of legal economics obscured the political dimension of antitrust legislation. She argues for a recovery of an older legal framework of antitrust that expands jurisdiction to cover cases where the economies of scale in political power created by large corporations is justification for trustbusting.

Andrew Cuomo: Prevent landlords from avoiding rent regulation

We passed the toughest rent regulation laws in 30 years. The new laws will protect more than one million New Yorkers from skyrocketing rent by, among other things, raising the deregulation rent threshold for the first time since 1993 and raising the income threshold for the first time since 1997. It will also help prevent landlords from manipulating the system to move apartments out of rent regulation. We executed a new economic development policy with our New York Open for Business campaign and by establishing Regional Economic Development Councils across the state. We passed an affordable energy policy with Recharge NY, on-bill energy efficiency financing, and, after a decade of trying, an Article X electric generation siting law. These programs will lower energy costs, promote energy efficiency, and reduce pollution.
