Are the amounts of influence players gain/lose each round public?

The rulebook is ambiguous enough for me to go either way:
Quote:
In order to ensure accuracy, each player must show his score to the player on his left, being careful not to reveal his Secret Agenda Token. Once the score is confirmed, the player collects this amount of Influence from the Bank


On the one hand, players could rein in those who are doing well; on the other it opens the game up to train-gamer score memorisation...

Yes, the amount you take in each round is public. The rule you quote is to prevent cheating and so that you don't have to lift up your screen each time. We however simply lift up our screen, hiding our Influence before we do this.

Oh, so does that mean that your Issues are public when you score as well? (And thus depending on how you negotiated, others may deduce your secret agenda...)

I think you gotta keep it as secret as possible in order to continue bluffing your way through the game.
