Politics in Australia - Friday lay day | Bill Mitchell – billy blog

Politics in Australia - Friday lay day | Bill Mitchell – billy blog | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it

"Its Friday and my blog lay day – which might mean anything. That is, I might write no blog or just a small blog. Its what I call freedom. A big week has gone. Edward Elgar will publish the English-version of my Euro book – more details later. The Treasurer has turned his nonsensical fiscal statement into a ‘trainwreck’, we learn that the world is actually in danger of ‘global cooling’ and more NSW conservative politicians bit the dust as the corruption scandal widens. Next stop – the Federal Liberal Party administration. It is lots of fun watching the conservatives meltdown.

The current conservative Australian government has appointed a few zealots as their advisers in policy relating to business, educational reform etc.

Recently, we had to put up with the claim by one of its educational advisers, one Kevin Donnelly who is head of the Government’s national curriculum review that “the use of corporal punishment for ill-disciplined children in schools” (Source) was an “effective” way to discipline children."

Washington's cynical misinformation game

Washington's cynical misinformation game | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it
Commentary: the role of distortion in health care politics.

 

"In most of our country’s major institutions, we have little tolerance for cheating and lying. Whether it’s the court system, schools, businesses, even our sports teams, we impose stiff sanctions against those who deceive us to gain some advantage.


Yet there is one arena in which misleading the public not only is abided but is the norm: politics. In fact, much of what constitutes political discourse in this country is now built on a foundation of dishonesty. One of the most effective — and perfectly legal — ways to win votes and influence public policy these days is to pour millions of dollars into deception-based campaigns designed to manipulate public opinion."

Bank Overseer PwC Faces Penalty and Sidelining of Regulatory Consulting Unit

Bank Overseer PwC Faces Penalty and Sidelining of Regulatory Consulting Unit | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it

"PricewaterhouseCoopers is said to have agreed to pay a $25 million fine in New York for obscuring misconduct it was supposed to unearth...

 

The giant consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers occupies a position of trust on Wall Street, acting as a shadow regulator of sorts that promises the government an impartial look inside the world’s biggest banks.

But the firm — hired and paid by the banks it examines — has now landed in the regulatory spotlight for obscuring some of the same misconduct it was supposed to unearth, according to confidential documents and interviews with people briefed on the matter.

New York State’s financial regulator is poised to announce a settlement with PricewaterhouseCoopers, according to the interviews, taking aim at the consulting firm for watering down a report about one of the world’s biggest banks, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ. The regulator, Benjamin M. Lawsky, will impose a $25 million penalty against PricewaterhouseCoopers and prevent one of its consulting units from taking on certain assignments from New York-regulated banks for two years, a reputational blow that could cause some banking clients to leave.

The firm, which is accused of lacking the objectivity and integrity expected of consultants but not actually breaking the law, agreed to pay the fine and accept the two-year sidelining of its regulatory consulting unit. PricewaterhouseCoopers appeared to have had little choice: Mr. Lawsky’s office, which has the authority under a little-known New York law to censure erring consultants even without a legal violation, threatened to otherwise inflict a more sweeping and lengthy prohibition."

Jacqueline Keeler's curator insight, August 9, 8:19 PM

WikiLeaks has released documents revealing corporate and government surveillance of the Mohawk people’s relationships with foreign countries, as well as evidence that movements that could block corporate plans for oil and gas were tracked and that Native American communities were monitored for the U.S. Department Homeland Security.

Shawn Wright's curator insight, August 11, 10:25 AM

For all who have uttered the thought that no Native American alive today was harmed by the actions of the government. If you will choose to you can open your eyes to truth. It continues today.

 

"Discovery of the BIA documents of government sterilizations on an estimated 70,000 Native American women throughout the 1970s. The procedures were performed by the Indian Health Service without the women’s consent, despite language barriers and under threats that they would lose their welfare benefits if they birthed another child. In some cases, teenage girls went in to have their tonsils removed and left without their ovaries."
