Abstract: In his book, The political economy of government auditing: financial governance and the rule of law in Latin America and beyond (Routledge 2009), Carlos Santiso addresses the elusive quest for greater accountability, openness, transparency and integrity from financial and audit institutions and their collective leadership. As the title suggests, Santiso's focus is on the management of public finances in Latin America (with special reference to Argentina, Brazil and Chile). These principles are the ingredients of good value governance, and also serve as key instruments that governments can use to fight against corruption, which leads to poor delivery of public services.
