A second look at global corruption

When London School of Economics Professor, Jason Hickel, read Transparency International’s yearly report on public sector corruption, he found, as in years past, the majority of the world’s graft and malfeasance was concentrated in the Global South and other developing countries. But Hickel challenges these findings. He thinks we should turn upside down how we think about global crookedness. He joins us to share his view that, by doing so, the so-called “developed countries” have a lot more to answer for. Hickel is also a contributor to The Rules, a blog dedicated to addressing “the root causes of inequality….[focusing] on building citizen power in the Global South.” (Photo: Flickr/luxorium)
