Lobbying: Spending Money to Make Money

Every day a dark-suited army of K Street lobbyists descends on Capitol Hill to beseech the US Government on behalf of their corporate clients. And it works. Studies show that every $1 a corporation spends lobbying Washington returns $220.[1] Not surprisingly, spending on lobbying has more than doubled—ballooning from $1.65 billion in 2001 to $3.31 billion in 2012.[2] What’s more, corporations who lobby Washington the most in relation to their size have outperformed the S&P 500 by an eye-popping 11% per year since 2000.[1] This motif includes companies who tend to spend the most on lobbyists relative to the size of their asset bases.
