Good Governance In The New Millennium
The long-term challenges facing today’s community leaders around the world stems from the break-down of the general public’s confidence in politicians, governing institutions and financial systems. The combination of reckless behaviour by banks and financial sector executives, dirt-poor planning by industry leaders in a time of un-deniable change, ignorance and outright cowardice by our politicians, and a complete capitulation of the self-praising media in the face of profitability and fame, has brought shame on the concept of good governance - not to mention on the concepts of ‘globalisation’ and ‘global leadership’. The core topic of his book is ‘good governance’. Although ‘governance’ is a neutral enough noun is ‘good’ a highly biased adjective. Just think about food and you know what I mean. Good Governance is just the same. Don’t be fooled by political jargon. Those telling you what ‘Good Governance’ is, will tell you what they think is ‘good’. For a generation now we have all been made believe that stock markets ‘know’ what is ‘right’. This has in turn led us to think that quicker return is better, and that those who earn a higher and faster return are better than those who earn a lower and slower one. This is how corporate greed has taken control – not only over the corporate sector, but also over political life. That is why the 2008 financial crash is also political. We need new paradigms. This book pin-points the nonsense and suggest remedies.
