    And there have been several POV on this issue, but I think I've been missing something. Romney and team has been touting his business expertise where Obama has none. The basic contention is that Romney knows how to run an American business because he has done a lot of that, many businesses, successfully and become rich doing it. As I'm to understand it, he started with little and by operating American businesses, small to large, providing jobs to many, he became rich and deserved it. So what if he did some tax avoidance in the Caribbean islands and had some Swiss bank accounts; this was all minor compared to his real American business that he ran providing jobs for Americans. What I haven't been able to find out is what are the American businesses he ran, how small did he start, approximately how many American jobs did he create. Where can I find out what I want to know? Please help me.

    However, the answer is, he created far more jobs than Obama did before he was POTUS.

    Romney is not running against Obama before he was president.

    Under normal circumstances, it's not a big deal to me and I don't really care about tax returns. HOWEVER, and this is a big however, the immense secrecy and steadfast refusal of Team Romney to release any more details than 1 year of tax returns is a HUGE red flag to me. He is VERY OBVIOUSLY hiding something ugly, or else the returns would have been released a long time ago to put the issue to rest. The fact that he is still refusing to release any more returns is extremely telling, and there's simply no arguing otherwise. It's very fishy.

    He absolutely should release at least 8 years, like President Obama has done. However, given how much of a weasel he is being with the Bain Capital story ("I was CEO, President, and sole stockholder and collected a salary for 3 years but had nothing to do with the company") I want to see the tax returns of those years as well.

    I've been looking where your suggestion led me. The principal–agent problem interests me the most right now. Thanks.
    Just so you have a bit of insight into what I've seen in the business world: A CEO of a division of a large US based corporation made the cover, i.e. his image was the only one on the cover, of Time. He could recognize me from behind at 50 ft and call me by my last name if he wanted engineering information from me. I was in team meetings he lead, about 7 of us, with him. I have known some CEOs and I wouldn't elect any one of them for public office nor to create jobs.

    hyperbole has long been a pet peeve of mine. I think very little of those that engage in it.

    Selective Transparency

    ...So how much do we wish to detour from the issues to know about the background of either candidate Romney or incumbent Obama? Some sort of compromise seems in order. If transparency is really what the public demands, and if these issues distract attention from a necessary debate over the economy, then in bipartisan fashion let us now demand full disclosure from both candidates: ten years of income tax returns from each, full and complete access for journalists to all known medical records of each, and complete release of all undergraduate and graduate grades, test scores, and other records...
