    • The Murdoch media empire and the spectacle of scandal

      Douglas Kellner (International Journal of Communication Vol 6 (2012), 10 May, 20)
      In July 2011, dramatic revelations concerning misdeeds by Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World, one of the most successful tabloid newspapers in history, erupted, creating a vast media spectacle. In July 2011, dramatic revelations concerning misdeeds by Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World (NOTW), one of the most successful tabloid newspapers in history, erupted, creating a vast media spectacle that was compared to Watergate and that threatened the existence of Murdoch’s global media empire (Bernstein, 2011). Richard Nixon’s Watergate crisis implicated the president in a series of scandals that led to the famous Senate Watergate Hearings, a major media spectacle of 1973, followed by his resignation from office, a first for a U.S. president. The cascading scandals in Rupert Murdoch’s media empire were thus referred to in some circles as “Murdochgate” (see Bernstein, 2011), a series of outrages and crimes that are continuing to undermine his media power and empire in 2012 and the foreseeable future. For years, there had been accusations that employees of Murdoch’s various tabloid newspapers had hacked telephones to gain information and pay police and other informers for news stories. In 2007, a News of the World reporter, Clive Goodman, and a convicted hacker, Glenn Mulcaire, were sent to jail for hacking the cell phones of members of the Royal Family, and reports surfaced in subsequent years that celebrities like Hugh Grant, Sienna Miller, and Jude Law were also hacked, as well as figures connected to sports, always an important domain of the spectacle. At the time, Murdoch and his minions claimed that the hacking was the work of a single rogue reporter and police and government inquiries accepted these claims.
    • Progress report 2011 - Enforcement of the OECD anti-bribery convention

      Kelly McCarthy; Fritz Heimann; Gillian Dell (Transparency International, 10 October)
      This report assesses the efforts made by OECD members to curb bribery practices and global corruption. This is the seventh annual Progress Report on Enforcement of the OECD Convention prepared by Transparency International (TI), the global coalition against corruption. The OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Offi cials in International Business Transactions, adopted in 1997, requires each State Party to make foreign bribery a crime. The Convention has 38 parties and is overseen by the OECD Working Group on Bribery. The Working Group conducts a follow-up monitoring process under which representatives of two governments and the Secretariat visit each member country and assess its compliance with the Convention’s provisions. The monitoring process is now in its third phase, which focuses primarily on enforcement and on the steps which countries have taken to follow up on recommendations in prior reviews. The OECD Convention is a key instrument for combating global corruption because the parties are involved in two-thirds of international trade and three-quarters of international investment. The Working Group’s monitoring process has been conducted in a rigorous and highly professional manner, which provides a model for other treaties. Follow-up monitoring is important to make sure that governments comply with their treaty commitments. TI’s annual progress reports represent an independent assessment of the status of OECD Convention enforcement. The reports have shown steady progress in the decade since the Convention went into effect. There is now active enforcement in seven countries, which represent 30 per cent of world exports, and moderate enforcement in nine countries, which represent 20 per cent of world exports. However, there is little or no enforcement in 21 countries, which represent 15 per cent of world exports. There has been no change in these numbers in the past year. This trend raises concern about whether the Convention is losing forward momentum. Continued lack of enforcement in 21 countries a decade after the Convention entered into force, notwithstanding repeated OECD reviews, clearly indicates lack of political commitment by their governments. And in some of those with moderate enforcement, the level of commitment is also uncertain. This is a danger signal because the OECD Convention depends on the collective commitment of all parties to ending foreign bribery.
    • Money laundering in Australia 2011

      Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre, 15 Novembe
      This report presents a consolidated picture of current money laundering - the indicators and activities involved, the sectors and professions which are vulnerable, a range of new threats which are emerging, and the general framework of regulations and actions necessary to identify and prevent this crime. By contributing to greater public and industry knowledge about money laundering, this report better positions government, industry and the community to work together to develop and strengthen preventative strategies against money laundering and the critical risk which it poses to Australia.
    • Do the right thing - developing an ethical culture

      Patrick McClure (Centre for Social Impact, 16 Septemb)
      CSI Ethics Fellow, Patrick McClure, discusses how to establish and maintain an ethical culture within organisations, in the August edition of ‘The Board Builder’. He says there is a strong business case for CEOs and boards of not-for-profit organisations to build a strong ethical culture, including managing risk, being accountable to stakeholders, building capacity in the organisation and protecting reputation. “CEOs and boards set the standards of ethical behaviour in their organisation,” he says. Patrick outlines five ways of improving ethical culture; 1) lay the foundations for governance and management; 2) structure the board to add value; 3) promote ethical decision making; 4) promote effective financial management; and 5) recognise and manage risk. Read the article titled 'Do the right thing - developing an ethical culture', which appeared in Board Builder magazine,- August 2010

    • Banking-Disclosure of Records-The Duty of a Bank as to Customer Information

      Wessling, Robert B., S.Ed. (University of Michigan Law School Scholarship Repository, 1962-04-01)
      The purpose of this comment, therefore, is to describe the scope of the banker's duty as to customer information as best it can be discerned in light of the increasing exchange of credit information and increasing resort to such information by government agencies-particularly the Internal Revenue Service. In the process, it is hoped that attention will be drawn to the uncertainty which exists in this area, perhaps prompting action by the states or the banks themselves to clarify the scope of the duty and to encourage uniform treatment of customer information in a manner consistent with this duty.
