This morning while browsing through my old diaries I chanced upon something interesting – a formula for corruption told to me by one of my colleagues which I had jotted down.
Corruption = Monopoly + Discretion – Accountability
Or simply put:
C = M + D – A
Corruption (C) equals Monopoly Power (M) plus Discretionary Power (D) minus Accountability (A).
Do have a look around and see whether this formula is accurate or do you see that there are other factors too.
