A Quick Primer on the Role of the U.S. in Foreign Kleptocracy and Corruption

We have a yearly trillion dollar problem, according Global Financial Integrity’s research. It’s not the national debt. Add to that 3.6 million deaths per year, by the One Campaign’s calculations. But not from war or genocide. The problem? Foreign corruption. If you’re thinking, “It happens over there”, that’s where you’re wrong. It’s not just their problem. It’s our problem. But shouldn’t we take care of corruption at home first? The problem is that we are the world’s home for corruption. The corrupt inside our borders use the same system as the corrupt outside our borders.
