Corruption

what is corrupt government
What is corrupt government?
  • Corrupt government is what you get when elected and/or appointed government officials use their power not for the public good but to steal from the people, enriching themselves, their family, their friends. Government is also corrupt when the hiring for government positions is for people related to certain families.Local and state governments are places where corruption can go unchecked for decades because no one is watching, except those who benefit from it. Contracts are awarded to insiders or the officials get kickbacks.

  • The activities that constitute illegal corruption differ depending on the country or jurisdiction. For instance, certain political funding practices that are legal in one place may be illegal in another. In some cases, government officials have broad or poorly defined powers, which make it difficult to distinguish between legal and illegal actions. Worldwide, bribery alone is estimated to involve over 1 trillion US dollars annually.
