This article examines the ethical issues in lobbying and corporate campaign contributions. It argues that corporate political activity in the form of lobbying must be carried out between the principle of freedom of expression and the principle of a government free from corruption. It analyzes the interplay between these two democratic principles and proposes eight guidelines that should govern eight of the most common types of corporate political activity.
