discuss what measures were employed over the decades to attempt to offset the political influence of wealth

In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge famously stated that “the chief business of the American people is business.” Between 1865 and the Crash in 1929, American industry and, consequently, corporations grew at a historically unparalleled rate, transforming the nation by 1900 into the world’s greatest economic power. However, this created a situation where a vastly unequal concentration of wealth allowed those at the top of the economic order to translate their fortunes into political influence. For this question, first explain how this concentration of wealth posed a threat to American democracy. Then, discuss what measures were employed over the decades to attempt to offset the political influence of wealth, citing at least three specific examples and explaining how they attempted to redress this imbalance.
