In Zussman’s (2005) article, “Fighting Corruption Is a Global Concern,” he claims that Canadians should reform their corruption problems. First, Zussman discusses that anti-corruption conference in

For instance, there are a lot of news about politicians who corrupts with businesspeople, and the money they like last president in Korean, Youngsam Kim, illegally gain often exceeds over millions US dollars once. According these huge money, they can become richer soon. As a result, it enlarges distance between the rich and poor. Moreover, money which comes from the general people will flow into rapacious people quickly, and then the gap between the rich and poor will turn deeper. In

It is terrifyingly people think corruption is correct. Moreover, this myth also helps useless people give an unmatchable job. The rich people in
In conclusion, corruption is adverse for human. It brings the unequal economic system among human being. Also, it gives people worse environment in the public and private sector. Furthermore, it smears the people’s minds, and let the world fill of dirty crime. So many negative factors tell us we should stop corruption on the earth. Nevertheless, if people keep on this selfish aspect, people will destroy everything on earth, including ourselves, who think we were mighty.
