Reviews - What do customers think about Machiavelli in Brussels: The Art of Lobbying the EU, Second Edition?

intricate lobbying  Sep 24, 2006
This is a subject very attractive to some readers. How do you, as a European interest group, get money out of the EU, aka. "Brussels". The author describes in detail many instances of lobbying, by a variety of lobbyists. You can see how a European federal apparatus has developed, that affects many aspects of people's lives.

There is also an analysis of interest groups at the national level. For example, those from Portugal or Greece often support protectionist policies for agriculture and small enterprises. Reflecting a common economic makeup of their countries. While Irish groups tend to favour a more open market, and greater free trade, as Ireland has benefited tremendously from these trends.

The competition between interest groups is also explained. Often leading to intense lobbying of bureaucrats and federal politicians.

The book is also interesting as a comparison with the US federal system and the lobbying that goes on at that level. Many similarities emerge.
