    Abstract

    Corruption thrives on misinformation and secrecy. In the Global Corruption Report 2003 , Transparency International ( TI ) puts access to information at the top of its agenda. TI catalogues a climate of mistrust that is working against the interests of shareholders and employees in the market economy, and against the interests of the developing world when economic and business decisions are taken on the basis of the size of a kickback rather than quality, competence and value for money. A sustainable and prosperous society requires a national integrity system based on the rule of law, checks and balances, and a thriving independent media and civil society.
