ABSTRACT
My lecture is based upon a fully referenced paper but it is not an academic paper that contains evidence from which it draws conclusions. It’s in the nature of corruption that there is little evidence and there are no text-books, no journals devoted to its practise and no guidelines. Instead there is observation, #nancial calculation, investigative journalism, and an increasing number of legal investigations and trials of its perpetrators to draw upon. When evidence is in short supply, therefore, it becomes necessary to rely upon inquiring minds.
