Mark Mizruchi, Director and professor in OS, and professor of Sociology, was recently quoted in the Deseret News. The article discusses "why the relationship between the GOP and big business is getting complicated."
In the article, Mizruchi, author of The Fracturing of the American Corporate Elite, states "the Republican-business community relationship dates back to post-World War II when moderate Republicans aligned with business interests, but that alliance has been fraying for decades as the party has moved further right."
“There’s been a trend in this direction for probably 30 years,” Mizruchi said. “It’s coming out in a new way now.”
