Perry's Spare Schedule Feeds Transparency Concerns
The governor who considers himself one of the state’s hardest workers has few official records to back up that claim — especially compared to the detailed schedules kept by his fellow big-state governors, which were obtained by The Texas Tribune through open records requests. Gov. Rick Perry 's Democratic opponent, former Houston mayor Bill White, criticized the Republican incumbent in June for "working part time" after his schedule for the first six months of 2010 showed an average of seven hours of state work per week and 38 weekdays with “no state scheduled events.” Perry responded that ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Can Investors Have Too Much Accounting Transparency? — HBS Working ...
Basic conclusions that can be drawn from responses to this month's column are that it may or may not be useful to try to legislate accounting transparency.

This theme was picked up by Richard Eckel, who wrote, "... legislative and ...
