Buying off pressure groups

Synonyms:
Compensating vested interests
Context:
Buying off pressure groups and vested interests differs from straightforward compensation of those penalized by reform processes. It is a way of overcoming obstacles to change in an overtly political way.
Counter Claim:
Far from softening resistance to change, this approach tends merely to channel protest into pressure on governments about who should get the most compensation.
