Honesty defeats corruption

According to Transparency International’s “Global Corruption Barometer 2013,” corruption continues to be a major issue with little change in percentages since last year.

In the United States over 60 percent of respondents believe corruption has increased in the last two years. 

The good news is that nearly nine out of ten people said they would act against corruption and two-thirds of those who were asked to pay a bribe had refused. 

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
