Abstract

Accountability. Oh no, I don’t know that I can. […] I guess some of us, when we think of that […] word we understand the importance of checks and balances. We understand that there are some things that – where accountability is near instantaneous, and that there are other things where there are grey areas and it’s much less difficult. But what it means, very simply, is to – to me, anyway – is that people understandably look to individuals, who have responsibilities, to be accountable for the conduct of those responsibilities. […] you need to put in place a series of things that hold people reasonably accountable for their actions, and people, I think, expect that.
