Types of Literary Conflict | External & Internal Conflict

 is a model example of the inverted detective story, one that perfectly exemplifies the form.
The absurdity of the notion that giving up control of an asset mitigates conflicts of interest arising from ownership of such asset will be evident to anyone who has filled out a COI questionnaire – meaning not just those in the public sector but private sector as well (including those involved in the above “hypo”). On such forms, employees must disclose asset ownership AND asset control – not one or the other. As long as an owner can know who is spending money in ways that benefit his asset – and if Public Citizen can know such things President Trump surely can too – then the conflict is there. Period.

“What used to be a conflict is now a synergy,” said then telecom securities analyst Jack Grubman in an economically frothier time. Conflict of interest aficionados will remember that that story didn’t end well – and not just for , but the larger industry of which he was a part.


Trump Family’s Endless Conflicts of Interest: Chapter …

The credit ratings industry has long been the focus of similar conflict of interest concerns – particularly those arising from the receipt of consulting-related fees from issuers whose credit-worthiness the agencies are rating. In a , Professors Bo Becker and Ramin Baghai of the Stockholm School of Economics describe their recently published research findings related to this area:

first pinch point = because Fall character arcs typically have an internal plot (even if it’s garnished with external conflicts and transitory antagonists), the first pinch point is the moment when the protagonist finds the first undoubtable evidence that something is wrong with him, with someone close to him, or with everyone else (humanity, the world, etc.)
mid-point = the protagonist confronts his suspicions or the person he believes to be the cause of the disturbances, and realizes the situation is much worse than expected; this can take many shapes, from confronting a suspected loved one for having an affair, or confronting the shady coworker for conspiring against him, down to confronting imagined (or delusion-induced) antagonists in unfavorable circumstances, which only lead to the protagonist becoming convinced of an even greater evil going on


As and others, Sixty-four trade groups, foreign governments, Republican candidates and others stayed at or held events at properties linked to U.S. President Donald Trump during Trump’s first year in office, a political watchdog group said in a report released on Tuesday. The arrangements represented “unprecedented conflicts of interest” because Trump oversees the federal government and has not divested from properties he owns or that carry his name, Public Citizen, a nonpartisan group, said in the report. Shortly before taking office last year, Trump said he would hand off control of his global business empire to his sons Donald Jr. and Eric, and move his assets into a trust to help ensure that he would not consciously take actions as president that would benefit him personally. Many government and private ethics watchdogs said the president should have gone farther, divesting assets that could cause a conflict of interest.

NDP to impose conflict of interest rules on public agencies

A direct way to test these competing interpretations is to examine default rates of firms that pay for consulting and those that do not; if the higher ratings of consulting clients are warranted, then—within a given rating category—default rates should be similar for issuers that are consulting clients and issuers that are not. Instead, we find that issuers that pay for consulting services have much higher default rates; this effect is increasing in the amount of fees paid. Overall, these results are consistent with a fee-driven conflict of interest between rating agencies and security issuers: when an issuer is directly important to an agency through the fees it generates, the ratings it receives are upward biased. Among consulting clients, those issuers that generate higher revenues have the highest ratings (relative to ratings from agencies with less consulting revenue from the same issuers).
