In this chapter proposals are formulated to fight corruption in order to restore the trust of voters in the political class. One proposal is to change the system of party financing. Although financial scandals in France, the UK, and Germany have led to stricter rules, much more can be done to improve the system. As, for example, in the US, where in 2010 the Supreme Court changed the rules and ended all limits on corporate expenditure on the grounds that these limits were an infringement of the First Amendment. The author discusses alternative models of party funding, such as exist in Germany, where since 1959 political parties have been funded by the government.
