A small number of top executives under investigation at state-owned enterprises have even committed suicide. While the campaign has been a hit with a public usually sceptical about such crackdowns, it's having an unintended consequence, said bureaucratic sources and officials at state enterprises: Those supposed to implement much-needed economic reforms and run the machinery of government are dragging their feet because they are scared of attracting unwanted attention. #facebook #Economy #India #Japan #Technology #France #markets #Argentina #Mexico
