Auteur : Daniel Golden
Genre : Éducation
NATIONAL BESTSELLER • “A fire-breathing, righteous attack on the culture of superprivilege.”—Michael Wolff, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Fire and Fury, in the New York Times Book Review

In this explosive and prescient book, based on three years of investigative report­ing, Pulitzer Prize winner Daniel Golden shatters the myth of an American meri­tocracy.

6 Relationship Between Bribery and Economic Growth: An Empirical Analysis (Report) - Indian Journal of Economics and Business
Auteur : Indian Journal of Economics and Business
Genre : Entreprise et management
Abstract Examining measures of bribe taking and the real gross domestic product (GDP) of 20 countries over a twelve year period, it appears that higher incidences of bribery do adversely affect the rate of economic growth of nations. However, the rate of growth of real GDP does not have a similarly strong impact on reducing bribery levels. Furthermore, for individual countries, the relationship between these two variables varies considerably, indicating that country-specific factors explain both the prevalence of bribery and the pace of economic growth.

10 Regulating Corporate Bribery in International Business - Nicholas Lord
Auteur : Nicholas Lord
Genre : Droit
This book is about the regulation of corporations that use bribery in international commerce to win or maintain overseas business contracts and interests. Recent large-scale cases involving multinational corporations demonstrate how large commercial ’non-criminal’ enterprises are being implicated in substantive overseas bribery scandals and illustrate the difficulties faced by responsible enforcement authorities in the UK and Germany. The book imports concepts from regulation theory to aid our understanding of the emerging enforcement, self-regulatory and hybrid responses to transnational corporate bribery. Lord implements a qualitative, comparative research strategy involving semi-structured interviews, participant observation and document analysis to provide empirical insights into this relatively invisible area of criminological interest. Despite significant cultural differences

18 Bribery and Corruption in Weak Institutional Environments - Shaomin Li
Auteur : Shaomin Li
Genre : Entreprise et management
Drawing on twenty years of research and observations, Li explains how bribery and corruption are carried out in countries with weak institutional environments, and how these activities become globalized. By distinguishing rule-based, relation-based and clan-based governance, this book offers a novel explanation to the age-old puzzle of why some countries thrive despite corruption. It also sheds lights on the symbiotic roles corruption and anticorruption campaigns play in maintaining dictatorships. Applying cost-benefit analysis to different governance environments, Li argues that as non-rule-based economies expand, the transition from relying on private relationships to relying on public rules is inevitable. However, by highlighting the globalization of corruption by non-rule-based countries, this book warns against the potential threats and consequences of bribery by powerful dictatoria

19 Thinking about Bribery - Philip M. Nichols & Diana C. Robertson
Auteur : Philip M. Nichols & Diana C. Robertson
Genre : Entreprise et management
Bribery is perhaps the most visible and most frequently studied form of corruption. Very little research, however, examines the individual decision to offer or accept a bribe, or how understanding that decision can help to effectively control bribery. This book brings together research by scholars from a variety of disciplines studying the mind and morality, who use their research to explain how and why decisions regarding participation in bribery are made. It first examines bribery from the perspective of brain structure, then approaches the decision to engage in bribery from a cognitive perspective. It examines the psychological costs imposed on a person who engages in bribery, and studies societal and organizational norms and their impact on bribery. This is an ideal read for scholars and other interested persons studying business ethics, bribery and corruption, corruption control, an

20 Bribery Act 2010 Taking Stock: Mark Dunn Cautions Supply Chain Players to Clean up Their Game (Corruption) - Supply Chain Europe
Auteur : Supply Chain Europe
Genre : Entreprise et management
After a lengthy gestation, the UK's Bribery Act 2010 finally gained Royal Assent on 8 April 2010, replacing more than 100 years of outdated legislation. The Act is anticipated to come into force in April 2011 and, although the formal guidance that accompanies the Act has yet to be published by the Ministry of Justice, its impact on the role of procurement is expected to be significant. At best, this will prompt firms to review current third-party due diligence procedures, at worst this could lead to a root and branch overhaul of the supplier management process. That said, in preparing for the Bribery Act, there is much that firms can learn from companies that have for some time been tackling the requirements of the Money Laundering Regulations 2007 and implementing anti-money laundering best practice. To briefly recap, at a high level, the Bribery Act sets out four key offences: * offenc

International perspectives are provided via comparisons with the law in Spain, Hong Kong, the USA and Italy, together with broader analysis of the application of the law in relation to EU anti-corruption initiatives, international development and the arms trade.

25 Frequently Asked Questions on Anti-Bribery and Corruption - David Lawler
Auteur : David Lawler
Genre : Finance
A practical guide to addressing the challenges managers face in implementing and enforcing new anti-bribery regulations
The Bribery Act became the law of the land in July 2011. It abolished all existing U.K. anti-bribery laws and replaced them with a suite of new regulations decidedly different and more strenuous than what has come before. Under it companies found noncompliant will be open to billions in penalties and remediation costs, and managers will be open to prosecution if anyone associated with their company commits an offence covered by the act. As employees in nearly all departments will share responsibility for ensuring that adequate procedures are in place and enforced, there is a screaming need for practical, jargon-free guidance on the subject. This book fills that need. It arms managers and advisors with the knowledge and tools they need to implement, communic

31 The Criminalisation of Bribery in Asia and the Pacific - Collective
Auteur : Collective
Genre : Asie
Criminalisation is a key component of all international anti-corruption instruments. For example, the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions (Anti-Bribery Convention) and the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) both require States Parties to enact specific criminal offences on bribery. The Asian Development Bank (ADB)/Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Anti-Corruption Initiative's Action Plan commits countries to ensure ‘the existence of legislation with dissuasive sanctions which effectively and actively combat the offence of bribery of public officials’.
However, criminalisation can be a challenging task, as experienced by many countries Party to the Anti-Bribery Convention. This report reviews the criminalisation of bribery offences in Asian countries under the UNCAC.

33 Will South Africa's ratification of the OECD anti-bribery convention have any sustainable impact on the country's corruption perceptions index? - Manuel Baumgartner
Auteur : Manuel Baumgartner
Genre : Entreprise et management
The term corruption is commonly used in order to describe a wide range of social conducts, which are condemned and rejected by societies all over the world as disreputable and detrimental. Corruption refers to a large number of irregularities, which can be ranging from the granting of simple personal favours, such as the giving of gifts in order to precipitate certain actions, on to cases of maladministration. In severe cases corruption even leads to conspiracies, which can impair the welfare of entire countries.

Most importantly, the money paid and received as bribe is in most instances the least part of the resulting damage. In fact, if taken into the books of the corrupted company, they can even increase a country’s GDP, since the bribe money is seen as a disguised source of income. Bad or wrong decisions and choices resulting from corruption, however, can cost a country’

40 Compliance in Multinational Corporations - Fabian M. Teichmann
Auteur : Fabian M. Teichmann
Genre : Philosophie
Over the past two decades, the enforcement of anti-bribery, anti-money-laundering and anti-terrorism-financing regulations has become increasingly challenging for multinational corporations.

Frequently, managers in charge of those firms end up facing criminal prosecution and civil lawsuits, and are not equipped with the formal legal training to prevent these phenomena.

42 Between Impunity and Imperialism - Kevin E. Davis
Auteur : Kevin E. Davis
Genre : Droit
When people pay bribes to foreign public officials, how should the law respond? This question has been debated ever since the enactment of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, and some of the key arguments can be traced back to Cicero in the last years of the Roman Republic and Edmund Burke in late eighteenth-century England. In recent years, the U.S. and other members of the OECD have joined forces to make anti-bribery law one of the most prominent sources of liability for firms and individuals who operate across borders. The modern regime is premised on the idea that transnational bribery is a serious problem which invariably merits a vigorous legal response. The shape of that response can be summed up in the phrase "every little bit helps," which in practice means that: prohibitions on bribery should capture a broad range of conduct; enforcement should target as bro

Genre : Ouvrages de référence
Over the past decade, countries have increasingly used settlements—that is, any procedure short of a full trial—to conclude foreign bribery cases and have imposed billions in monetary sanctions. There exists a gap in knowledge, however, regarding settlement practices around the world and the disposition of these monetary sanctions—notably through the lens of recovery of stolen assets.
