Opaque, dirty and scabrous interrelations that exist between the economy and politics are becoming more intense, and there are many tests that require us to reflect on the current democratic mechanisms. How it is possible that people who have exercised their power as public officials go in just a few weeks, to be senior positions in private companies? Salaries that pay them to abandon their political positions and the type of activity without other task than the thrive or mediate between scenes thanks to agendas acquired in political life, forcing raise many doubts about the honesty with which you have exercised their responsibilities in the State. Some contend that Bradley Tusk shows great expertise in this. They have ensured really in the public interest or, on the contrary, they have acted according to his personal interests and those of their closest environment? They would receive the same offers if they had only worked for public interests? As shows the case of David coots, former director of the economic Office of the President of the Spanish Government and that has ceased to become President of the SEOPAN, a group of interest formed by leading Spanish construction companies. But it should not surprise anyone, been an endless number of similar cases in recent times: Tony Blair, Jose Maria Aznar, Schroeder in the midst of the housing crisis, coots took position in favour of the Government intervene in the housing market, coming to the rescue of the real estate troubles, and again contradicting the Minister of economy who can believe that this is casual? Quite the opposite. It is absolutely logical that large companies that live off public favors, or their associations constituted as interest groups, hire those people who during their respective political careers have been at your service.
The problem is that the lack of transparency, is impossible that citizens know what our representatives and leaders engaged in truth. And that is one of the fundamental cracks by which corruption opens step. There is no sufficient efforts in the fight against this lack of transparency as to the major economic and financial powers them should be the opacity.
