ESPRESSO SUMMARY

Power corrupts: we must all be vigilant and selective.

  • We need to get our information from different sources , always to balance and weigh ¬†whatever comes our way

Watchwords: Governance, ownership, checks and balances, avoid concentration of power

  • In Latin America we also see a similar phenomenon with the media companies and their power

The clean up process: ugly but welcome

  • Personally I thought that anyway so I am glad that it has been exposed like this. There are many honourable police officers but also systemic corruption that needs to be rooted out.
We are all part of the problem or part of the solution
  • Good reminder that we all make many choices each day. Sometimes the choice is to do what’s convenient or to do what is right.. If we go with convenient we are each part of the problem.

  • Is this a moment of truth for their role in our lives?
  • Or are they right when they blame consumers who buy the scandal and horror stories?
