rent seeker
 n.— «The Israel lobby, like the Saudi lobby or the Iraqis who lobbied for U.S. invasion of their country, could be compared to what economists refer to as “rent seekers,” that is interest groups who profit from government policies, in this case U.S. interventionist policies in the Middle East.» —“From the China Lobby to the Israel Lobby” by Leon Hadar Antiwar.com Apr. 13, 2006.
