Snippets from the EGP Manifesto: (5) Lobbyists, fraud and corruption

The EU needs a stronger anti-corruption policy and more effective instruments against organized crime to strengthen democracy and the rule of law, and also to strengthen the European economy.

Corrupt behaviour by EU officials or parliamentarians in their relations with lobbyists must be met with very strong reactions. Big business still influences the Commission too much. Almost 80% of all stakeholders appointed by the Commission represent corporate interests, despite a commitment to change.

Greens also fight to tackle the problem of “revolving doors” where top bureaucrats and politicians in European institutions join private organizations which they were previously responsible for regulating.

Interesting and ironic the fact that mexicans are more satisfied with their lives than the OECD average, with 85% of people saying they have more positive experiences in an average day (feelings of rest, pride in accomplishment, enjoyment, etc) than negative ones (pain, worry, sadness, boredom, etc).

Mexico ranks low on most of the topics and results are real. Great part of the population do not have opportunities to reach a better life, such as having the access to education, a safe town, a decent income or a job.

Therefore, is complicated to understand the reasons of feeling happy about their lifes if the minimun standards to survive are not covered by the state.

Wages do not meet the expectation of Mexican professionals, to the extent that in some cases a “master builder” receives a salary equal to or greater than that of a professional who studied engineering, accounting, medicine, marketing or advertising.

This is not acceptable because the country has everything to be competitive and developed but more than half of the population is poor. It is true that the economic growth is expected to be better next year for Mexico but it does not mean a better life for mexicans. Unfortunately, besides the reforms and improvements that stakeholders of the political system are developing, the main problem in Mexico persists: corruption.
