Nevada has spawned a thriving industry of consultants who aid companies seeking to avoid liability and disclosure, at a time when Washington is calling on other nations to enforce greater transparency of financial flows. Ten years ago, Nevada enacted some of America’s loosest disclosure and liability laws for corporations, in a bid to spur the state economy. Today, the business of registering companies in Nevada, many of them shells, is booming. Picture taken September 10, 2011. REUTERS/Las Vegas Sun/Steve Marcus/Files

    Malaysia's opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim is greeted by supporters as Anwar attends a funeral, a day after he was hurt when police fired tear gas during a rally for an electoral reform, in Kuala Lumpur July 10, 2011. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak will likely hold off on calling a snap election any time soon and rethink tough economic reforms to consolidate support after a rare anti-government protest highlighted the opposition's growing strength. More than 10,000 people took to the streets on Saturday to demand more transparency in the voting process, which they say is riddled with irregularities that favour the ruling coalition, and to urge the election commission to be impartial.
