Abstract

Recent changes in American politics, particularly the rise and proliferation of public, single and professional interest groups, are difficult to account for in traditional pluralist or elite formulations. These groups not only try to affect policy at the point of adoption, but also penetrate intergovernmental delivery systems during the implementation stage of the policy process. US politics increasingly resembles the European/Scandinavian model of corporatism, but in the US there is no central, overarching coordination of policy sectors, only the sectors (eg housing, welfare) are corporatist. Thus, the US suffers from the costs of corporatism (eg alientation of individuals, atrophy of legislatures) but gains none of the benefits (eg economic and social planning, coordinated resource allocation among sectors). -Authors
