In the UK (and I think elsewhere) there has been a move towards the promotion of "corporate responsibility" and improved "corporate governance". I have no problem with that but I do not like the mood which prevails around this "movement". It is as if companies are to be treated as inherently naughty children – and that all companies must be bad, unless proved otherwise. My experience is the opposite – most companies, most businessmen are inherently honest and decent – tough, yes, but not dishonest. Treating them as otherwise is likely to be counter-productive.
