At present I think global economics is corrupt. Under the table payoffs
are routine business just about everywhere. Graft. I learned all about
that in Costa Rica - to get something imported, built,and many other
things, you have to pay and pay and pay - everyone gets a little bit of
your money, and it can take months to, for example, import your own vehicle
after which you will have paid more in graft than you did for the car.
