Business is corrupted by money, sexual harassment, and no justification. Money has corrupted business in ways that they try to deceive the certain types of officials ones that have not been corrupted. High forms of corrupted government get more expensive, lavish resources and accessibility in Afghanistan and other countries (thieves of state pg.44).

Some unethical business practices have even greater consequences including death due to negligence and even genocide. Other actions also constitute unethical business practices.

1. Introduction Bribery in international business is widely regarded as a major political and social issue around the world, and the one with plenty of harmful effects. Multinational companies have frequently traded payoffs for favourable conditions by decision makers to obtain contracts, reduce import duties, or acquire favourable interpretation of laws affecting the firm (Christopher Baughn et al., 2009).
