Corruption in North America: Canada and the United States
- 372 Downloads
Neither Canada nor the United States is corrupt according to global standards and the critical measurement indexes. But both harbor pockets of corrupt practice and their political and jurisprudential procedures differ strikingly, with recent decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court contributing significantly to a weakening of bars against corrupt political behavior and undue corporate influence over elections. Leadership differences also influence tendencies towards rather than away from corruption, with a president coarsening the national moral fabric whilst a prime minister steers a steadier ship of integrity.
