  1. Checkout this latest website on Obama's recovery plan which shares details on how the US goverment is using the tax payers' monies.

    It quotes "Accountability and Transparency:-
    This is your money. You have a right to know where it's going and how it's being spent. Learn what steps we're taking to ensure you can track our progress every step of the way.".

    If only the Malaysian goverment is able to do the same....

  2. Hello big brother Loh,

    Glad to know you have your new blog.
    Added your blog into my "friends' blog".
    Will put yours into "management blogs" once I have compiled some.

    Thx for the website.
    US needs to have better accountability and transparency. I have a post on Congressional Oversight Panel (COP) complaining on Accountability for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).

    I hope M'sia is going to that direction too.
    I have a post on "Malaysia 2007 Auditor-General Report". Though it shows that many things are in a mess but I think that is the right direction. Sigh.. lots of rooms for improvement.
