The UN estimated the amount of bribes in the world

35
According to the UN, the world economy due to corruption activities annually loses $ 2,6 trillion, while the volume of bribes is estimated at $ 1 trillion, reports RIA News.




The annual volume of bribes in the world is estimated at one trillion dollars. At the same time, the global economy is losing another 2,6 trillion dollars due to corrupt activities. According to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), in developing countries, losses due to corruption exceed official development assistance by 10
says the UN website.

As Transparency International has previously reported, Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan are 131-ranked in the world in the corruption index.

This year, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, together with UNDP, developed a campaign aimed at “understanding how corruption affects education, health, justice and democracy,” the release notes.

The UN also reminded that bribery is “a serious crime that undermines the socio-economic development of any society, and no country, no region is immune from corruption.”

      Well, yes, all three in one place, I wonder who is ahead? Probably Africa in its entirety, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. All progressive mankind, so to speak, only a bloody sawk in its rightful place. wassat
      Yes, as in the US, pees ...... t (there is simply no other way to pick up another word, sorry) loot, echelons. Our compared to them are just children from kindergarten. laughing Corruption in the West is stupidly legalized, all these lobbyists. Who is it if not corrupt ???

        I don’t know about what echelons you are talking about there, but there is no such rampant domestic corruption, such as in Russia (in the USSR, for example! And what did you think?). Wherever you look pay everywhere! Starting from kindergarten, and ending with universities. And does our free medicine really exist without bribes ?? Courts with their judges, lawyers who know who to bring ... Remember the drunk boy? This is only at the household level, and the situation is even worse above! Governors, ministers, generals, and even colonels. Therefore, pretending that everything is in order in our own country is simple, indecent.
        So, while our country is under capitalism, such a situation will always exist. Because capitalism is fundamentally the root of injustice. Earlier it was a shame to give someone a bribe, to offer, to offend it ... And now, please!

          That's just about the USSR-no need, we lived, corruption flourished at the state level. And get something from the warehouse? What was not in the shops (carpets, crystal, furniture, etc., listen to Raikin, he clearly painted everything about the merchandiser). And to get out of turn an apartment, a car, a ticket - is that how it was, forgot? But the special services, the regional committees and sanatoriums, I’m silent about the Central Committee - was that not corruption?

        The fact that we are at the level of African countries through bribery is a fact. I just don’t understand what does SAVOK have to do with it?
        We have been living in capitalist Russia for 26 years, we can argue about the terminology, e.g. new feudalism, oligarchic-bureaucratic capitalism, etc., etc.
        And now the main thing: what does corruption mean? Treasury? Bribes? Cut it? Rollback? Privatization? Theft? Abuse position? .... add if you miss something ... Or is it all together?
        I think that in terms of "corruption" as a comprehensive concept, we are among the three most "thieving" countries in the world.
        If already now 1,5 trillion appears as sovorovannye, and a detailed study will be 2-3 times more, then why be surprised.
        For the fat 0000th we sold natural resources for 3,5-3,7 (according to conservative estimates) a trillion raccoons !!! Where is the money zina ???

          In your opinion, we live under capitalism and supposedly about the same as in other civilized countries.
          And according to the West, we still have SAVOK, the president is an irremovable dictator, the mining industry and key areas are actually nationalized (Gazprom, Rosneft, Rostec, VEB, Rosatom, UAC, USC, etc.). We spend too much on pension subsidies and other payments. And so in almost all areas. So in the eyes of the West, we are a socialist state in many ways.

            In Russia, not just capitalism, but capitalism in its worst manifestation, in the most unfair to ordinary people. Oligarchic. This is according to Lenin, when there is an increase in capital and power. He wrote this a hundred years ago, and is still more than relevant! The abnormal gap (much more than in the West!) Between the wealth of the rich and the poor is clear evidence of this.

            If you are interested, then you google yourself, that for social programs, medicine and education, we spend in% of GDP, exactly as much as African countries, and in the worst cases.

      There are analytical methods for counting. If you know how much has been poured into the pool and how much has poured out, you can calculate how much is left.

    And what is there to guess !? The main bribe giver is the champion, today the main bribes are sent to IOC members. hence the whole doping scandal, and the evidence for Western "democracy" today does not need the main slogan of these shit-bucks - omit your opponent. and let him pay off or repent and take off his flogging pants!

      Interesting..! "Statistical studies have found that during the fight against corruption, government revenues can increase 4 times (in the long run), businesses can grow more rapidly by 3 percent, and child mortality rates can drop by 75 percent."

      131 - This is from a group with severe corruption. But not the coolest:
      in Libya, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen - even more.

    So much for the one-polar world in capitalism at the very ends of the ears. Bacchanalia at all levels. But he invented these tools and supplemented their composition. They understand how the mechanism works and what changes with individual elements lead the system to certain states. The era of the Golden Calf, the devil eats Hidsick, and the new Jesus trains the will. Another unnecessary war for anyone. At first, everyone agrees and nods deep down, feeling wrong with no knowledge and doing nothing with no arguments like Choi sang. What will be worth a thousand words when strength of hand is important? and then they fight like antibodies with a virus for cleansing the body, but you didn’t have to allow them and you fight anyway with those you couldn’t protect and allowed you to control them from outside by letting go. The battle of peoples, minds, views. This system called human society must be in strong high moral, physical, spiritual gauntlets in order to develop and function as befits highly organized beings and destroy immediately with all the impulses that interfere with the system as a whole.

And in civilized countries there is no corruption, therefore, no assessment was made. As Transparency International reported earlier - what kind of organization is sorry? In short, there is no need for such dregs, designed for the layman to print, someone determines what places there, what kind of nonsense in general?

    I laughed! In Germany alone (said by officials) 300 billion were marked !!! Euro!!! Something is breaking through Siemens, Deutsche Bank, Volkswagen, E.ON, Daimler, Aliance, BASF, BMW, Metro, Deutsche Telecom, Robert Bosch and others ...
    And the rest of the EU? What about the USA? What about China? What about Japan? Great Britain?
    These are honest, honest countries that work with African, Asian, Latin American (and with their own - European people!). They work honestly and honestly with everyone! (already pulls, honestly). Nah ...
    But it turns out that all the corruption material flows into Russia, Ukraine and (forgot where ... Ethiopia? Moldova? Kyrgyzstan, Ossetia, Chechnya, Abkhazia? There is such an incident as Vitya-Moreman used to say).
    Well? 131 places? Is this how they count? Well, fools, who believe in this crap, - there and the road!
