Corporate Governance Quote

I was part of a panel on Corporate Governance organised by India Knowledge@Wharton last week in Delhi. Paul Beckett, the Wall Street Journal’s bureau chief in Delhi, was part of the editors’ panel which did the questioning. In an article on the Wall Street Journal site, he quotes me:

“Even as we talk about corporate governance, people feel they can get away with corruption at multiple levels,” said Rajesh Jain, chief executive of Netcore Solutions, at a discussion Friday organized in Delhi by Knowledge@Wharton. “If the King is bad, the people think they can get away with it.”

I am hoping IKW will put up a transcript soon of the engaging discussion that took place.
