Transparency and Honest, Often Touted, Rarely Delivered


Transparency is a highly valued attribute that extends to individuals, businesses, and government.  It is often touted, routinely promised, and often undelivered.  How many political candidates have promised to be the most transparent office holder ever, only to actually deliver the complete opposite?  The same is true of companies and individuals, promising to be transparent only to deliver opaqueness.  When it comes to promising transparency, it often seems the more a person or company touts it, the higher the probability it will not be delivered.  Perhaps Shakespeare’s famous line from Hamlet, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” is a fitting warning.
