Thank you very much for this article. Well articulated. Even after so much destruction of economies and the poor in the developing world, there are still some who believe that corruption is either not a big issue or is just the 'cost of doing business'. Glad to see that there is yet hope in the world for those that believe that corruption is at the heart of the challenges developing countries face. Once you address this issue, I think you would have solved 80-90% of the problems many developing countries face.
