Complete 10 pages APA formatted article: Corruption and Integrity in Business. However, the President of the United States sanctioned and therefore allowed torture and violence in the prisons of Abu Ghraib in the name of stopping terrorism. So, it is unclear as to what “standards” this writer should take to give meaning to corruption and integrity.

A second issue that is important to this discussion is culture. The American culture is very different from those in Iraq, Pakistan, Mexico, and other areas but we judge their cultures based on our own. This comparison is like apples to oranges because though they are countries, they are not like ours, so we really do not have the right to judge for them what is corrupt versus what falls within their integrity. it is obvious that these two areas are different for different cultures. This being said, it is the job of this writer to look at countries in terms of how they deal with these issues. For this paper, the countries of Pakistan, Mexico, China and Germany have been selected.

In order to speak about these concepts, it is necessary to define them so that we know what we are talking about and how we are comparing them. According to Transparency International, “corruption is operationally defined as the misuse of entrusted power for private gain” (Transparency International, n.d.). This definition basically has to do with bribes and there are two ways that bribes can be taken: 1) as payment for preferential treatment or 2) as payment for a service that a person who accepts the bribe is not authorized to provide. According to Wikipedia, ” Integrity is the consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, and principles” (Wikipedia, 2008). Therefore if we put these two definitions together, we are looking for those countries who have a high standard of ethics when they are doing business and who consistently work with everyone in an equal way. We are also looking for those countries that willingly take bribes for any reason. One other note is that the concept of corruption is basically a global perception of a particular country’s business dealings based on their behavior in the world. This is important because perceptions have a tendency to be subjective and difficult to trace.
