Our society is built on structures with a common theme: we get more out of working together than being alone. This is true of families, cities, countries and regions.
All these structures are driven by laws and regulations. This ensures that society as a whole gets the most out of cooperation.
However, this result becomes distorted the moment a person, or organisation fails to respect these laws. This happens, for example, when someone bribes an official whose job is to enforce a rule.
In this way, corruption reduces what society could otherwise yield.
Corruption is a major and often ingrained problem in many countries of the world – especially in the poorest parts of the world.
