Corruption causing poverty: If you have all of this money and resources being spent among rich or middle class people and not to the poor and needy which really need the money, the vicious cycle of corruption begins. People bribe to get away from things the easy way, or to enter somewhere, may be to do harm to someone else but for every penny spent on bribery and mischief why not use that money or resources on poor people. All of the poor people that live below the poverty line need a chance to stand out but they lack the money and resources to do so, china has a rank of 3.6/10 in corruption meaning that it is one of the most corrupt countries, that is a lot of money and resources being spent on bribes. Poor people use the little money they have to gain access to basic necessities of life, spending at least a portion of the money used in bribes would allow access to education to all these poor people leading to knowledge of corruption and its bad effects which leads to less corruption that finalizes in lower levels of corruption, and more money flowing to those who truly need it. Corruption also leads to higher prices in everything. Corruption also counteract any humanitarian or any type of help because corruption takes all the money and resources away from it and gives it to the fat corporate bosses and rulers. How to solve it? Quick and gather a task force of experts and civilian anti corruption campaign leaders and crack down any corruption in the world a and for every one captured use the bribed money to help the cause of cracking down corrupted links. Also raise awareness of the subject through strong propaganda campaigns on major TV, Radio, and Internet media outlets.
