Tollison 1 Introduction The interest-group theory of government seeks to explain governmental behavior on the basis of the costs of organizing interest groups in order to seek wealth transfers through the aegis of the state (or, what is analytically the same thing, the costs of organizing interest groups to resist governmental expropriation of wealth).
An interest group is a group of people brought together by common concerns, and who try to influence government policies that deal with those issues. Some governmental officials argue that special interests groups' influence is a bad thing, however interest groups provide lots of benefits for not only congressmen but the public as well.
