La tyrannie des lobbies, par Serge Halimi (Le Monde diplomatique)

by marco
La politique américaine est à ce point gangrenée par l’argent des lobbies industriels et financiers que seules les réductions d’impôts franchissent sans peine le barrage du Congrès. Imposer quoi que ce soit aux banques, aux compagnies d’assurances, à l’industrie pharmaceutique relève donc de la gageure.

Corruption: les sales manies de la Roumanie

by srcmax (via)

«Un an et demi après l’adhésion à l’Europe, il est toujours difficile de dire s’il existe une véritable volonté politique de lutter contre la corruption ou s’il s’agit seulement d’effets d’annonce, constate Lucia Efrim, journaliste.

Council Maladministration and Injustice

by Gallup & 1 other
Misconduct by Councils, when it occurs, harms not only the community they are elected to serve but the wider reputation of government as a whole across the entire country.

by ravi
A decade after competition was introduced in their industries, long-distance phone rates had fallen by half, air fares by more than a fourth and trucking rates by a fourth.
