CONTEXT

'It took long enough in all conscience for the realisation to come that the externals of civilisation - technology, industry, commerce and so on - also require a common basis of intellectual honesty and morality'. Hermann Hesse, The Glass Bead Game, 1943

'Economies only work if companies are run efficiently and transparently. We have seen vividly what happens if they are not: investment and jobs will be lost - and, in the worst cases, of which there are too many, shareholders, employees, creditors and the public are ripped off'. Frits Bolkestein, EU Internal Market Commissioner, May 2003
