Abstract (summary)

Financial contributions by individuals to political candidates and parties are a critically important, yet largely overlooked mode of political participation. To date, no one has examined the effects of campaign finance laws on the likelihood of individual contributions. This work does just that, and finds that campaign finance regimes have an indirect effect on the likelihood of an individual contribution by an indirect route. Campaign finance laws shape the behavior of the political elite, who in turn rouse citizens into this critical form of political participation.
