The more I take my head of out the sand the more I realize life is really more like living in a Soprano's Episode. A friend of mine and I often have been having these conversations about the criminality and the sense of entitlement that so many CEOs of various public companies have and engage in. AIG and their $400+k beach retreat, after receiving their bailout package. What about the GM executive digging a hole while testifying to congress. I will explore and rant about this further, but my gawd .... where is the honesty and integrity that we were supposed to practice.
I realize, that in Canada, we don't have as many undisclosed financial transactions as part of our daily life compared to some places. Bribes are more common here than people think, but we have our blinders on, and think that it's only a practice of the few. Many of my foreign friends laugh at our naivety, undisclosed commissions are an expected part of doing business and life is so many places. I've begun to accept it, and the more I open my eyes, the worse everthing really appears.
