#BusinessBelieves corruption and state capture are the cancers eating away at our country.

We know business has made mistakes and too often fallen short. We should have been louder in condemning bad practices. Today we are clear: we will not stint in our criticism and action whenever business fails.

But we must highlight the greater problem. We cannot grow our economy in the face of corruption and state capture. Too often government contracts and jobs go to the connected rather than the deserving.

Everyone who cares about this country must cry, “Not in my name!” wherever they see evidence of corruption, whether in the public or private sector.

It must be rooted out, crushed and punished.
