Business Necessity of Paying Bribes

A study by Gallop found that two out of three adults around the world believe that corrupt practices are occurring at the businesses in their own country.

60 percent of United States citizens and Canadians believe that corruption is a common occurrence at their workplace. In Sub-Sahara Africa, 76 percent of its residents feel that corruption takes place in business. Nearly 90 percent of residents in Indonesia feel that corruption is a problem in their country.
