Corruption is not only about bribes: People especially the poor get hurt when resources are wasted.
That’s why it is so important to understand the different kinds of corruption to develop smart responses. Power of the people: Create pathways that give citizens relevant tools to engage and participate in their governments – identify priorities, problems and find solutions. Cut the red tape: Bring together formal and informal processes (this means working with the government as well as non-governmental groups) to change behavior and monitor progress. It’s not 1999: Use the power of technology to build dynamic and continuous exchanges between key stakeholders: government, citizens, business, civil society groups, media, academia etc. Deliver the goods: Invest in institutions and policy – sustainable improvement in how a government delivers services is only possible if the people in these institutions endorse sensible rules and practices that allow for change while making the best use of tested traditions and legacies – imported models often do not work. Get incentives right: Align anti-corruption measures with market, behavioral, and social forces.
Identify ways to leverage international resources to support and sustain good governance. Learn by doing: Any good strategy must be continually monitored and evaluated to make sure it can be easily adapted as situations on the ground change. Corruption is simply a symptom showing that things somewhere are going in the wrong direction, and one of the conséquences of this is corruption.
To my view the issue is on the correct application of rules and regulations and the sanction against those who do not comply to these rules.
The following essay explains how and why: THE MOST SOCIALLY JUST TAX (AND ITS 17 EFFECTS ON THE NATIONAL ECONOMY) Our present complicated system for taxation is unfair and has many faults.
The biggest problem is to arrange it on a socially just and ethical basis.
The useful land is monopolized by a landlord, who either holds it out of use (for speculation in its rising value), or charges the tenant heavily for its right of access.
In the case when the landlord is also the producer, he/she has a monopolistic control of the land and of the produce too, and can charge more for it or for the access right than an entrepreneur would do, who in seeking greater opportunity and trade, is willing to exploit the situation less during the goods’ sale.
The usefulness of land is measurable in terms of the price that tenants pay as rent, for access rights to the particular site in question.
Land is often considered as being a form of capital, since it is traded similarly to other durable capital goods items.
