Financial transparency for politicians

Financial transparency and accountability is often practiced in companies and organizations across the world. However, despite "all power corrupts" being a known axiom, little to no measures exist for curbing the extent to which world leaders and other major politicians may benefit from their position in power. It would be naive to assume that they would never find ways to hide their incomes to circumvent this accountability, but there ought be international measures in place to at least try to root out corruption and unethical, illegal enrichment at the expense of a country's citizens. Hopefully these measures would be expanded on and improved over time, to gradually create a world where people in power are not in it for the wrong reasons.
