Third Year Test (What is Corruption?)

Post by tanita on Tue Jan 29, 2013 6:40 pm


What is corruption?

Corruption is the abuse of entrusted power for private gain.Corruption hurts everyone, and it harms the poor the most. For example, a father who must do without decent clothes because he is unable to pay a bribe to get his child into a supposedly free school. A sick person who buys unless counterfeit drugs, putting his or her health in danger.

Other times the impact of corruption is less visible. For instance, post-disaster donations that never reach the victims, callously diverted instead into the bank accounts of criminals.Or, the faulty buildings, built to lower safety standards because a bribe passed under the table in the construction process that collapse in an earthquake or hurricane.

Corruption has considerable consequences, trapping millions in poverty and breeding social, economic and political unrest.Corruption denies poor people the basic means of survival, forcing them to spend more of
their income on bribes. Human rights are denied where corruption is rife.Corruption undermines democracy and the rule of law. It distorts national and international trade, threatens domestic and international security and the sustainability of natural resources.Corruption compounds political exclusion: if votes can be bought, there is little incentive to change the system that sustains poverty.
As a conclusion, corruption hurts everyone whose life, livelihood or happiness depends on the integrity of people in a position of authority.
