Ginsberg and Green (1986) discuss why money possibly influences members of Congress, thus possibly affecting the outcome of certain principles. In addition to corruption affecting the poorest sections of society, the effect of corruption on politics is that it renders the state incapacitated and powerless. Corruption is damaging to the state’s ability to extract taxes, to implement coherent and rational development policies, to redistribute among groups and consequently to its ability to transform the society and the economy according to political priorities. The capacity of the state to extract taxes would be erode when individuals and groups are able to pay their way out, and certainly when public officials are embezzling revenues. When bureaucratic regulations are reorganized, manipulated and operate in a confusing manner, the methods are there to enable bureaucrats to easily collect bribes.
Corruptions can be classified into two different categories: passive and active. Passive corruptions is where a criminal justice agent takes bribes or gratuities or anything in that nature (Pollock, J). Active corruptions is where you physically take something from a crime scene or engage in more deviant behaviors (Pollock, J.). Corruption can be also be classified as political, economic, and public administrative corruption. Probably the two most corruption in the field would be economic and political.
To conclude, the Great Depression wasn’t just a fail in the stock market, it was a combination of social and economic factors. Isolationism, made us overproduce and under consume, which resulted in a loss of jobs and money. Consumerism led people to buying expensive things that they don’t need and regretting it later. The Great Depression not only affected business but also everyday Americans. In all of American history, the Great Depression was the worst economic collapse that severely affected
The third effect of the pyrrhic defeat stated in the book states,” The effect of the third failure is that the individuals who are arrested and convicted for crimes are predominantly poor people” (179). With the combination of relaxed nature of prosecuting rich people, and the predominant persecution of the poor, our criminal justice system is heavily broken. Poor people have a substantial great chance of being convicted of the same crime as someone who is rich, and their conviction is a group of people makes the system unfair. The broken system is subtle, but it is is there to define the poor not as a group of desperate people who want to improve their lives, but as future crimiminals who must be punished for the crimes they will
Fitzgerald reveals the idea of corruption in the American Dream through conditions such as wealth and materialism, power and social status, and relationships involving family and affairs. He uses examples of this corruption to show the reader that people are willing to lie, betray others, and commit crime to be able to live a ‘better and fuller’ life. The need for money and materialism throughout The Great Gatsby shows the decay of the American Dream.
It also causes a nation to not run as a democracy. The United States is already a plutocracy nation because most of the wealth is going to the top of the pyramid and they have the most power to control policies around them. While individuals who are at the bottom are minimum wage workers who don’t have many opportunities to excel in their careers and generate more income. Having a gap between the way wealth is distributed causes health problem for those at the bottom because they have higher levels of stress. It also affects the economy because consumer spending depends on those who are at the bottom end of the spectrum.
Regardless of the negative influence, in certain instances it is left difficult to condemn the transfer system due to its wealthy impact on the economy. However, how does it impact and aid the growth of money laundering? This is simple. The concept of “Hawala” is to transfer funds to a foreign part, thus altering the origin of the finances. Many illicit trades and illegal money achievement will be transferred through “hawala” to a different party and then returned as part of a legalized business front.
Corruption will create social class and it is unfair to all the citizens. It also widens the gap between wealthy and poor and it cause further problem. For example, the corrupted people can enjoy a better life but other is still get trouble on how to live a good life. The most dangerous effect of corruption is when judiciary is corrupted. Development, justice and civil society are based on law and justice, but in developing countries corrupted people uses law to justify their illegal behaviors.

The government is a majorly corrupt, which has led to great instability in the country. The first area that has suffered greatly from this lack of transparency is economic growth. In Somalia, many strong and influential businesses monopolize the market, through varied corrupt strategies, such as political power, embezzlement, and bribery. Surprisingly, Somalia has laws to protect against these crimes, but they fail to be strictly enforced. Researchers also found that “Somalia’s provisional constitution criminalizes severe forms of corruption [...]; however implementation is non-existent” (Gan Integrity, 2016).
