The issue of corporate political contributions has drawn a lot of attention since 2010, when the Supreme Court opened the way for secret political contributions by companies and unions. Shareholder groups are pressing businesses to disclose what they give and warning of the risks involved in making contributions, including damage to corporate reputations, extortion and waste of corporate assets. The response from companies has been mixed. Now two organizations have made an effort to assess how much corporations are revealing about such contributions. An index from Baruch College in New York rates S&P 100 companies on the extent of their disclosures and their policies regarding contributions.
