Winnipeg Free Press: The attack on openness

Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 6.21.14 AMI”ve published an oped in the Winnipeg Free Press on the pushback against governmental openness.  “Six years have passed since the financial collapse of 2008. We liberated global financial markets to rule themselves, and they let us down. Now we are witnessing one of the perverse results of this collapse: a boom in complaints about the weaknesses of democracy, and the dangers of too much governmental openness.”  Read the oped in the Winnipeg Free Press.  The oped has also been republished by freedominfo.org.

I’ll be giving a lecture on government openess next week in Mexico City, at the Accountability Network’s international seminar on accountability and corruption control.  The working text for my address can be downloaded from SSRN.
