Corruption - Different Methods

Different Methods

Corruption occurs through myriad methods. The use of both positive and negative inducements to encourage the misuse of power is well known. In addition, favouring of friends, relatives and cronies in a way that is not directly beneficial to the corrupt individual is another form of corruption. In systemic corruption and grand corruption, multiple different methods of corruption are often in use concurrently with similar aims.

Famous quotes containing the word methods:

    The comparison between Coleridge and Johnson is obvious in so far as each held sway chiefly by the power of his tongue. The difference between their methods is so marked that it is tempting, but also unnecessary, to judge one to be inferior to the other. Johnson was robust, combative, and concrete; Coleridge was the opposite. The contrast was perhaps in his mind when he said of Johnson: “his bow-wow manner must have had a good deal to do with the effect produced.”
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    The greatest part of our faults are more excusable than the methods that are commonly taken to conceal them.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
