Corruption is when a person, who is in a position of authority, indulges in unethical or dishonest conduct for his or her own personal benefit. Corruption involves many unethical practices such as embezzlement or bribery. Corruption can have a damaging effect on the economy of a nation. Corruption may lead to undermining investments in important sectors such as education and health, discouraging investment into the nation, lowering productivity, lessening the confidence of the people in public institutions among others. Corruption can also lead to a slowing of the economic growth of the nation, thereby increasing poverty. Other than this, there are many other problems that the population of a country has to face due to corruption. While some nations have taken commendable steps in tackling corruption, others have lagged behind.
