DAVID SPEEDIE: I'm David Speedie, director of the program on U.S. Global Engagement here at the Carnegie Council. I am delighted to welcome our guest today, Frank Vogl, who is the president of Vogl Communications, Inc., in Washington, D.C., a financial and economic public relations firm. But most importantly for today's purposes, he is the co-founder of two organizations, Transparency International [TI] and the Partnership for Transparency Fund.
He served as the vice chairman of Transparency International for its first nine years and now serves on its advisory council and as the advisor to the managing director. He was previously a prominent international economic journalist for Reuters and The Times of London and served as director of information and public affairs at the World Bank.
Mr. Vogl is here to speak also about his new book, Waging War on Corruption: Inside the Movement Fighting the Abuse of Power, which came out in mid-September
