Transparency 21: The political-civil service group
In the previous blog “Transparency 20: The origin and the instruments of Corruption” we pointed out that the joint action of a political-civil service group, a criminal group, and a financial group was necessary. On Transparency 21 we analyze the political aspect that inspires civil service through the development of restrictive legislation or internal regulations that promote and protect the commission of crimes by members of certain lobbies.
The political origin of the current crisis is clarified when we consider three sentences exposed in a public debate, the two candidates for president of his country. One candidate has a slip and say, “Now you’re who is lying” before accepting that it has lied.
A bit later, he accuses the other candidate saying, “If you say what you think, were not going to vote nor your party “accepting that there are hidden agendas that do not appear in the electoral programs. To which a little later the other candidate answers: “You are a master at saying one thing and doing another.” In either case the citizen can conclude that both candidates lie, that both know, and consider that political parties have become one way or another in something like a theater company, even staging a confrontation in public, share private interests that unite them in pursuit, shared power lever: public money.
When after the election one of them comes to power legally, a new phase of the pre-electoral demagoguery going to create a virtual reality to justify situations begins. So today it is explained that the crisis began with the housing bubble which in turn led to a financial crisis and hence the loss of jobs to finally lead to the current deficit of the states. It really should be explained by another order: The high public deficit caused the financial crisis and this led to employment crisis for lack of business financing aggravated by (and return to the public) excess interventionist regulation. The housing bubble is a separate process that is used to confuse piece.
Just read the newspapers to find evidence that the current crisis originated in the huge public deficit resulting from excessive spending and indebtedness of states. These tests range from overspending on government personnel, the use of public funds to offset losses in public enterprises (in terms of the items included in budget) as well as generating costs to businesses arising from payments for illicit activities such advice or assistance in efforts by councilors, mayors and government ministers to different sectors of government.. We can also find topics related to the cost generated by nepotism, political patronage, or fraud organized as pension payments to deceased persons, unemployment benefits to people who work, or aid for the integration of families who no longer live at home that welcomed them or giving aid to entities related to some politicians, trade unionists and other lobbies.
In this situation officials no lack (usually hired by appointment as senior) in the midst of the crisis are allowed to give lessons to private companies proposing state intervention as a solution. So in a crisis of public debt has not missed senior state bank to consider certain financial institutions should reduce size and proposing laws that favor the disappearance of banks considered a failure if that goal is not achieved. Maybe they should worry about the makeup of the accounts of government entities and state or regional television and the transfer of real estate agencies in the state to private entities, with no known considerations, rather than giving advice to all you need is the public administration let them work in peace.
The appointment of governments of national unity or governments with a technical profile in some countries is the realization that the current political structure is rotten, the invasion of individuals who are not political or civil servants but they are criminals disguised as politicians or civil servants, and profound changes such as transparency laws for public administration, independent audits, independent judiciary from the other branches and especially open for nominations of honest political parties lists are necessary.
