Ecuador lacks the autonomy of bureaucracy and judiciary from political rulers which would allow control of corruption, so its modest reforms on fiscal transparency only had a limited impact. While no major development can occur outside a massive political change for which a critical mass does not seem yet to be there, more administrative simplification and progress on e-government may help the gradual universalization of access to public resources.
