“During her remarks at the Stanford Directors’ College in June 2014, SEC Chair Mary Jo White observed that “audit committees, in particular, have an extraordinarily important role in creating a culture of compliance through their oversight of financial reporting.” [1] Since then, various Commissioners of the SEC and its Staff have reinforced this message by reminding companies of the audit committee’s duties under federal securities laws to:

 •oversee the quality and integrity of the company’s financial reporting process, including the company’s relationship with the outside auditor;
•oversee the company’s confidential and anonymous whistleblower complaint policies and procedures relating to accounting and auditing matters; and
•report annually to stockholders on the performance of these duties.”

Daqui.

“Were there cases where you were perversely impressed by how ingenious or brazen the cheating was?
I was actually surprised the most by how overt and obvious the schemes were once we found out about them. There were a number of these sanctions cases where groups inside the bank put out manuals — manuals, about how to set up their systems and how to train their people to avoid filters that would generate red flags for us to see. That was what surprised me, the obviousness of it. Even with the LIBOR and the FX trading, just the overt going to chat rooms and just fixing the prices. This willingness to just flout the rules, regardless.”

No institutional framework can survive unless it serves the material interests of its constituency.

Até temos o drama a pairar e tudo

Gosto da fotografia inicialmente escolhida pelo jornal para ilustrar a notícia, com uma malandra de uma velha de perna esticada e com um flor na mão, por certo comprada com dinheiro que está a roubar aos meus filhos coitadinhos, enquanto jovens empresários dinâmicos vão trabalhar apressados.

Depois, foi substituida por outra onde outros velhos andam a gozar com o nosso dinheiro, olhando para o ar ou mandando sms. Salva-nos o jovem empresário dinâmico ao fundo, apesar de  esfocado.

Pelos vistos não sou a única que não quer viver nesta Europa, embora as razões sejam bem diferentes.
