ABSTRACT
The article argues in favour of lobbying in the U.S. legislative processes. It is not that lobbying is bad in itself. Despite the invidious significance attached to the word, lobbying honestly carried on for proper ends is an important and valuable part of government. Legislators do not learn the wants and needs of the people by direct revelation. One of the best ways of informing them is by the give and take of personal contact which is the basis of lobbying. The only precondition is that Lobbies ought to represent genuine public interests, not mere private and personal ones, and they ought to do their work honestly and openly.
