De Volkskrant. De Volkskrant Top 200 is een ranglijst die de bestuurlijke elite van Nederland in kaart brengt: de mannen en vrouwen op de belangrijkste posities in de maatschappij, maar ook de landgenoten die in het verleden hun sporen hebben verdiend in politiek, openbaar bestuur of bedrijfsleven en die nu, vaak achter de schermen, actief zijn in besturen, raden en commissies.

De lijst brengt zo de gevestigde orde in beeld, de schaduwmacht van notabelen die, zoals een ingewijde het eens uitdrukte, aan invloed zouden verliezen als ze minister werden. Want dat is een kenmerk van de bestuurlijke elite: haar leden zijn in het algemeen niet democratisch gekozen en worden niet altijd democratisch gecontroleerd. De lijst rangschikt de invloedrijkste bestuurders uit een door de Volkskrant opgebouwde database van bijna 23 duizend personen en functies. Een aantal mensen wordt om praktische redenen uitgesloten van de ranglijst. Morrill Land-Grant Acts.

History[edit] Capital in the Twenty-First Century - Thomas Piketty. Conflict of interest.

The presence of a conflict of interest is independent of the occurrence of impropriety.

Conflict of interest

Therefore, a conflict of interest can be discovered and voluntarily defused before any corruption occurs. A widely used definition is: "A conflict of interest is a set of circumstances that creates a risk that professional judgement or actions regarding a primary interest will be unduly influenced by a secondary interest. "[1] Primary interest refers to the principal goals of the profession or activity, such as the protection of clients, the health of patients, the integrity of research, and the duties of public office. Secondary interest includes not only financial gain but also such motives as the desire for professional advancement and the wish to do favours for family and friends, but conflict of interest rules usually focus on financial relationships because they are relatively more objective, fungible, and quantifiable.

John Boehner Backed Deregulation Of Online Learning, Leading To Explosive Growth At For-Profit Colleges

Those eight lines have proven a potent fertilizer for a for-profit college industry that has since grown to enormous proportions, collecting most of its profits via federal student aid dollars. In the five years since Congress deregulated online education, enrollments at for-profit colleges have nearly doubled. Six major corporations owning for-profit institutions have enjoyed initial public offerings on Wall Street, with each promoting the rapid growth of online classes to investors and netting millions in compensation for executives.
