ABSTRACT
The article reports that Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono initiated reforms to combat corruption in the country, according to Transparency International. A two-year campaign to root out corrupt practices has won praises among the international community. While he is keen to fire high-profile cabinet members who stand in the way of his corruption-busting plan, Yudhoyono's policy is causing economic uncertainty because it has paralyzed decision-making at the national and provincial levels.
