Corruption has played a pivotal role in determining the current
state of the world - from mass poverty in developing countries, to
the destruction of natural resources and to the erosion of trust in
political parties. Laurence Cockcroft here argues that corruption
has to be seen as the result of the interplay between elite
embedded networks, greed and organised crime. He shows how the
growth of corruption has been facilitated by globalisation, the
integration of new and expanding markets into the world economy,
and by the rapid expansion of offshore financial facilities. These
facilities provide a home to largely unregulated pools of finance
derived from personal fortunes, organised crime and pricing
malpractice in international trade. By identifying the main drivers
of corruption world-wide and analyzing the current action to
control them, this book suggests ways in which the problems caused
by corruption can be addressed and ultimately prevented.
