The Business of Politics – Political Businesses

A surge of young voters is fueling a niche market that targets their growing passion.


6 min read


For nearly three decades, voter turnout among young Americans steadily declined; it seemed that people under 30 just didn’t care about elections or political issues. But the tide started turning in 2004, when voter turnout among 18- to 29-year-olds was higher than any year except 1992.

Current research shows the under-30 generation is paying more attention to politics and elections than ever before–and this politically savvy group isn’t afraid to voice its opinions. Thanks to hot-button issues such as the war in Iraq, global warming and rising gas prices, young voters and activists are not only rocking the vote, they’re rocking the businesses that allow them to display their stance on political issues.

“People have become more passionate and emotional about the outcome of the election, and they want

Effect of Politics on Organization and Employees

What is Politics ?

  • Employees who do not believe in working hard depend on nasty politics to make their position secure at the workplace.
  • Employees play politics simply to come in the limelight and gain undue attention and appreciation from the seniors.
  • Politics refers to irrational behavior of the individuals at the workplace to obtain advantages which are beyond their control.
  • No body has ever gained anything out of politics; instead it leads to a negative ambience at the workplace.

Effects of politics on organization and employees:

  1. Decrease in overall productivity

    • Politics lowers the output of an individual and eventually affects the productivity of the organization.
    • Common observation says that individuals who play politics at the workplace pay less attention to their work.
    • They are more interested in leg pulling and back biting. They spend most of their times criticizing their fellow workers.
    • As a result of politics at

Conscience and the body politic

Bureaucrats have social status and power. They also possess personal knowledge of the rules. So, as a reasonably educated Indian citizen knows, it is pointless to argue with a bureaucrat: one can only plead with him or her. The case of politicians is different. They seem to be one of “us”, as they derive their power from their popularity among ordinary men and women. Also, we learn at school that democratic politics is all about discussion and debate. So, when we grow up and attain adult citizenship, we live in the hope that our views will be heard by those who represent us.

This hope — and the belief that keeps it alive — received a body blow during the

Naked if I want to: Lena Dunham’s body politic

In Hollywood, it seems you’re only allowed to be naked if you’re Megan Fox. If you’re not, you had better be apologetic about it, like Melissa McCarthy in “Mike & Molly.” But God forbid you’re a woman with an unconventionally beautiful body and you’re okay with it. That’s when people like Howard Stern start to get hysterical: Lena Dunham, whom the radio host described as a “little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill” and likened her taking off her clothes to rape, has become a feminist heroine largely due to the fact that she unapologetically parades her naked body across the TV screen. Dunham has been both derided and deified for baring her unconventionally beautiful figure throughout both seasons of her HBO series. (And don’t expect her to stop anytime soon, she told Entertainment Weekly in a February cover story: “My point with getting naked is never

America’s Hidden Duopoly (Ep. 356 Rebroadcast)

In the most recent two-year election cycle, the political industry’s revenue was estimated to be $16 billion. Meanwhile customer satisfaction is at a historic low. (Photo: Bill Pugliano/Getty)

We all know our political system is “broken” — but what if that’s not true? Some say the Republicans and Democrats constitute a wildly successful industry that has colluded to kill off competition, stifle reform, and drive the country apart. So what are you going to do about it?

Top 25 political speeches of all time: 25-13

As Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, Gen Eisenhower announced the D-Day landings at Normandy to the people of France and Western Europe. Warning them of further loss and tragedy ahead, he advised the Resistance to be patient and wait for orders. Eleven months later, the Germans surrendered. “Great battles lie ahead. I call upon all who love freedom to stand with us. Keep your faith staunch – our arms are resolute – together we shall achieve victory.”

23 Nikita Khrushchev, February 25, 1956

Delivered in secret before a rapt audience of Communist apparatchiks, this remarkable speech by a Soviet leader helped destroy Stalin’s reputation. Khrushchev launched a full blooded attack on the pillar of the Soviet system, who had been venerated for much of his life. Speaking three years after Stalin’s death, Khrushchev dwelt on his paranoia and brutality. “Stalin

Social Media and the Hatch Act | Hatch Act: Candidate Photographs

All Department of Justice employees are subject to the Hatch Act, 5 U.S.C. 7323(a) and 7324(a), which generally prohibits Department employees from engaging in partisan political activity while on duty, in a federal facility or using federal property.  Political activity is activity directed toward the success or failure of a political party, candidate for partisan political office, or partisan political group. The statute carries serious penalties including REMOVAL from federal employment.
The Hatch Act applies to all federal employees; however, application of its restrictions is broken down into two groups, based on position.

“Less restricted” employees, including most career employees in the executive branch, are able to participate actively in political management or partisan political campaigns,
