Notice incidentally that what is at stake is a rather subtle matter: weighing the impact of several factors which (all agree) interact in determining state policy: in particular, (A) strategic-economic interests of concentrations of domestic power in the tight state-corporate linkage, and (B) the Lobby.
The M-W thesis is that (B) overwhelmingly predominates ... Insofar as the stands of the Lobby conform to (A), the two factors are very difficult to disentagle.
... Another problem that M-W do not address is the role of the energy corporations. They are hardly marginal in US political life ... Do the energy corporations fail to understand their interests, or are they part of the Lobby too?
