Summary:

"There is a country where citizens can follow the lobbying done on parliamentarians online. In another, you can access public spending by federal employees or request information on the salaries of judges and parliamentarians. Both countries are in Latin America - viable initiatives because of open data policies and access to information. The problem is that these benefits only accrue to a few people out of the region’s 569 million."
