Doug: Richard, If you were talking to leaders in business in the community, why they should be tuning into this piece we are doing “Truth on Trial: Implications for Communicators Ethics and the Collapse of Institutional Trust”?

Richard Painter: Business owners have a great stake in what goes on in our government. If we don’t have sound management in our government and ethics in our government, we have conflicts of interest in government, unpredictability. That creates an economic climate that is at best uncertain for business owners and at worst catastrophic. We need to focus on the quality of our political regime as well as on economic growth because instability in the political arena, corruption in the political arena-ultimately will bring down the economy and will be all of us much poorer as a result.
