Corruption exists in ALL countries and societies. There has always been corruption and there always will be corruption.

Corruption exist in everywhere

Postby Milly » Fri Oct 17, 2003 3:33 am


I think corruption exist in everywhere. In magazine, radio, TV, we heard too much about who corrupt. Who has big power ,who has big volume corruption, who has small power, who may has small volume corruption.
A few days ago, I saw a sitcom about criminal. in it, a role said one word:
I look down on these men who have corruption. Today,I heard from my colleague. They must be validate by the certain authority before our products will be exported. but a few days later, the procedure hasn't completed, while the products are eager to be exported as the customer require. So my company gave money to the missionary in the authority.
To my surprising, this matter is finished at once. This corruption happened aroud me. The missinary receive money, and then help us to finish this procedure. My colleague said: if you don't give money to them, this procedure must spend some days.

corruption exists in every country

Corruption by its very definition is part of every homo-sapien.Man in an attempt to have anything corrupts either in kind, cash ,or action.When you require services from someone you sometimes plead with him/her.These services are given to you EVEN when visibly you don,t deserve it because your smile or words have been convincing enough, those words have corrupted the person who has rendered the services to you.
There are cases where you give money to acquired undeserved favours,that as well is corruption.
The fact about corruption is that you are being favoured when you actually shouldn,t be.This canker worm runs through the crux of all societies,think of the last presidential election in the supposed most democratic country of the world.Turn an eye to the cause of the most recent California recall and its result! Who says corruption is reserved for some?

Corrumtion

Postby kirk » Sat Nov 22, 2003 10:06 pm

Corrumption is all over the world and as long as man is alive, corrumption will exist. Develop and developing countries has and have experienced some degree of government corrumption. However, more corruption is practiced by some government officials from developing countries, due to their short post period.
I was reading an article about the current ongoin corruption in Ecuador.
It is believe that the current president's campaign was funded with drug traffickers money, while the Congress is now debating now whether to impeach or not the President.
In Russia, its richest man is in jail due to tax evasion in one billion dollars. In Venezuela, president Chavez has difficulties to remove elite people from the government. Venezuela is polarized country as Argentina is. Three weeks ago, China announced labor wrong doing and practices in some of its northwest provinces.
CEO's from developed countries, like the United States, have been practiced for years the habit of inflate its companies financial statements to atract investors.
Although most countries try to be in transparent position and form, they find so difficult to keep such image, mainly because corrupmtion is practiced by the government officials for very log time, making hard for new officials to break such onion ring corrumption.
