An E&Y survey of 400 CFOs around the world finds that 15% are willing to make cash payments to obtain or retain business, up from 9% last year. And 5% said they would misstate financial results vs. 3% last time. "One of the most troubling findings of the survey is the widespread acceptance of unethical business practices," E&Y says.

    All the survey showed is that some people have opinions and will answer, period. I agree with the comments on honesty. AND : Active Citizens demanding Integrity, acting with civility, courtesy,
    and truthfulness, with openness, and fairness are the priceless
    pillars supporting our liberty and free society.

    Note, the above quotation about active citizenship may be yours,
    suitably engraved on a scratchpad of handsome note paper for the
    princely sum of your merely requesting one. Also, with your shipment
    will be, if requested, a unique exquisite bumper sticker (saying,” Who is paying for these wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and Libya?”) for use either
    prominently on your automobile, or, you may want to stick it up in a
    place of honor on your person, or some other highly visible landmark
    such as your front door.

     

    Limited quantities apply, so don't hesitate if you want one before
    supply runs out!

     

    Best wishes,
