  1. Congratulations Linda, great job as usual. Thanks for putting all of you past collection of Blog posts on trust as well. Not sure if you have seen it, ,but Secretary Kerry gave an outstanding presentation on ethics and corruption at the World Economic Forum in Davos. You can see a copy of this on my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/dennis.brining. I think you would enjoy it as he presents the best systems summary of the problem and all of its impacts.
