The susceptibility of the poor to pay these bribes is twice as much as that of the rich, which is primarily because the poor feel powerless against the corrupt officials. "When coming into contact with the police, more than a quarter of people told us that they needed to bribe either to get assistance from the officer, or to avoid a problem like passing a checkpoint or avoid a fine or arrest, which is further evidence that graft is undermining the rule of law and allows people to get away unpunished for their crimes," says Pring.

It massively intensifies the organised crime in a country, as criminals bribe law enforcement, the judiciary system and politicians to avoid prosecution and stay in power. The financial incentive from supporting criminals means officials do not give enough national focus to fighting the issue.

With its larger presence of slaves, Rome modified the hierarchy to become harsher. People with low social status, such as an “ill-favored slave boy,”(Doc 1), had little money and respect. They had no open jobs, so they turned to crime as a source of money and resources. On an empire-wide scale, rigid social hierarchies played a large role in the Roman decline, as “commerce had largely disappeared owing to the lack of customers [and the] piracy on the seas,”(Doc 2).
