Why? Conflict of interest. Who works at the central bank will eventually get off the government. And this guy will need a job - at some bank or financial organization. Why should he(she) piss off the same institutions that will provide him(her) a job in the future?
You know, wikileaks is doing the job that a transparent government should do in the first place.
And sorry, but is completely bullshit to compare mass-spying with disclosure of secret acts of the government.
Sorry, but when exactly NSA was part of the solution?
Sorry to reply this in a off-topic, but your signature message had 3 lines, don't? (I'm serious).
Anyway, I remember your signature for dozens of very good comments here.
there is a concept called 'informational asymmetry'. When you have a big IA, you cannot have well done system of agency (like the theory of agency).
So, if you have a big gap between who votes and who gets votes, you cannot have a real democracy. That's plain and simple.
unlike Israel? what?
Why do you think Iran is trying to get nukes in the first place?
That's exactly the problem: if you really think SUSE or FEDORA could be a non-geek linux, you probably don't even know what is a non-geek user.
The true is that Ubuntu and Canonical are doing a great job. Unity is not there yet, but will be. Mir is starting, and I would bet that will be good in 2 years.
I loved linux back in '90s (slackware at the time). But after sometime I found that the fanatical community would never do a system intended for non-geeks. For this reason, I stoped using linux in the 2000s. But ubuntu changed that mentality. They have a system that have auto-updates, a good management pack system and a simple and beauty visual. I get things done in the office without going to source code. That's all I require from a computer. And Ubuntu, right now, is the ONLY linux (for desktop) that provide this.
Yeah, the communist (not Marxist socialist, but actually "to each according to his need") English NHS is awful.
Oh wait, no, it's the best healthcare system I've ever experienced.
Also the problem here is contracting out to the lowest bidder. The problem was introduction of the private sector into government work - the same problem there always is.
Ofc you're a troll, but a nice launchpad.
I worked at brazilian public sector. Everytime a private contractor was put on the loop, the costs rise 2 - 3x and the quality goes down.
(And I should point out that brazilian public sector is really inneffective)
The solution is not easy, but it is simple: contract a GOOD management guy and a few engeneers directly. Put this guy in charge and create a accontability proccess.
Looking from outside (Brazil here), it's almost impossible to understand how fox news became the mainstream media.
They are clearly biased, superficial, and quality is clearly not a goal.
Basic is a high level languish. APL is a high level anguish.
