The major stories about corporate doings in 2011 have not been good - whether you look at Fukushima and its handling by the Japanese, News International and the phone hacking scandal, corruption in various major sports associations, and so on and so forth.
No wonder the Occupy Wall Street movement has gained so much sympathy, especially when we read of some of the reactions from Wall Street.
Still, I hope that things improve in 2012, less scandals and more good news from the social and the sustainable front. If the increase in visibility on the Web is any indication, then at least the topics have moved from the outer fringe somewhat into the area of respectability. Let's hope!
