Democratic governments are rightly concerned about how money is used to influence elections. The oft-quoted proverb, "He who pays the piper calls the tune," contains a large grain of truth. In many countries comprehensive statutory regulation of campaign expenditures may be found; but it is unlikely that any other country can match the variety of experiments which have been indulged in by-the national Congress and the forty-eight state legislatures in the United States.
