Every year, Transparency International makes public its “Corruption Perceptions Index,” a measure of how corrupt different countries are in relation to each other. Go to
and find the latest CPI report.
Where does the United States rank in the index?
Does the US ranking surprise you? Would you expect the US to have a more corrupt ranking or a less corrupt ranking? Why?
Although not required, feel free to comment on any thoughts you might have about Transparency International.
Research “facilitating payments” (sometimes known as grease payments).
In the United States, The
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) permits facilitating payments.
On the other hand, facilitating payments
are prohibited under the
United Kingdoms Bribery Act of 2010.
What are your thoughts? Should “facilitating payments” be prohibited by U.S. entities and individuals?
