Judged by those above you

One of the world’s leading global governance think tanks, the One World Trust, issues an annual report rating the accountability of international organizations. Examiners evaluate transparency, participation, evaluation and complaint and response capabilities.

In the most recent report, The International Olympics Committee (IOC) received the lowest overall score in the report, closely followed by The International Atomic Energy Agency, which promotes nuclear energy, and NATO, which accounts for over 70% of the world's defense spending.

The IOC rating was lower than even these corporate citizens of villainous repute:
  • Haliburton
  • Royal Dutch Shell
  • Goldman Sachs
  • Unilever
  • Cargill
  • APEC

  1. IOC - the perfect example of what happens when an organization becomes addicted to power...and other people's money.

    Couple that with the government of BC (whose addiction is identical)...and you have the recipe for economic disaster.

  2. Less accountable than NATO, Haliburton, Goldman Sachs? Unreal.
