Corruption has its uses
People believe widely that corruption hampers economic growth. But in East Asia the experts have noted the seeming paradox of high corruption and high growth occurring together. And they conclude that corruption in weak and still unformed states—for as long as it is predictable, moderated and controlled—has its uses, since it substitutes for the legalities that in the mature countries ensure the stability of investments and the inviolability of property rights.
Only in our country has corruption failed to produce this East Asian paradox.
I think the main problem here in the Philippines second to the corruption is that every politician is claiming each other is corrupt. Each and every day there is a new corruption or two proclaimed in the media. by this factor alone the Philippines is look at being the most corrupt in south east Asia. The truth is that its stand equal to many of its neighbors.
