When our Country once again leads by our example, this should be revisited. Transparency is always a good practice which in financial markets does put all of the players on common ground and tends to assure an equitable basis for lenders and borrowers alike. When we can demonstrate this transparency to our world partners by our country’s own actions- then we have a basis for insisting that they ‘play fair’ as well. Demanding others play fair while stacking the deck in your favor is fundamentally dishonest (like trumpublicans stacking the deck of court appointees and then claiming Democrats are not ‘playing fair’ when they get called for their actions). Actions, actions speak much louder than words. Words that are not supported by our own actions will be ignored more and more until our country’s international rhetoric becomes completely meaningless.
