DIGITAL BANGLADESH- CAN IT PREVENT CORRUPTION

A study of the effect of bribery and corruption with lack of censorship in the governmental institution
There are various reasons why corruption takes place and takes hold. Sometimes it is due to the fact that officials are simply not paid very much and so they need to supplement their salaries with money from bribes. Sometimes the bureaucratic system is set up in such a way that officials simply refuse to carry out their duties unless they are ‘encouraged’ by being offered bribes. In other cases it is actually part of the tradition and culture of a country to give and receive ‘gifts’ in order to get anything done. In some cases companies from less...

Exploring The Role Of Government Watchdogs In Canada And Its Influence On Society, Economics, And Politics
In our increasingly neoliberalized and privatized society, the concept of governance and ethical conduct has been falling from the grips of public dialogue and discussion. Self-regulation has become a “mantra for both governments and private industry in the neoliberal era (Burch et al., 2013, p. 259). Given the onset of recent environmental disasters related to the oil and gas industry, the oligarchic telecommunications industry, and our crippling health care system, the role for government watchdogs becomes ever more so important.

Judicial independence, although often argued to be a fundamental concept to the rule of law, democracy and political stability, alarmingly continues to be contested and vague even in economically developed liberal democratic states recognized for the rule of law. This was particularly indicated by leading US constitutional scholar ‘name’, ‘there is a disagreement about whether or how to criticize judges and their decisions, and about whether or how to discipline judges. And, of course, there is pervasive disagreement about whether our judges exhibit too much or too little independence.’ The problems are exaggerated in cases of developing countries with unstable democracies and...

Why CSR is Essential in the Real World of Business
By Thomas Lyon
Created 2010-09-20 03:30
In a recent op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal, my colleague Professor Aneel Karnani explained why he thinks corporate social responsibility (CSR) is at best irrelevant and probably socially damaging.
The heart of his argument lies in the assumption of a neat separation between markets and politics. In this idealized world, politics can be counted on to deliver the regulations needed to rein in corporate greed and malfeasance. Then corporations can safely be left in the hands of managers whose sole interest is maximizing...

Sentences of stoning and amputation are relatively rare: between 1981and1992forty-five judicial amputations were carried out and four death penalties by stoning in Saudi Arabia.
The introduction of the Sharia became the rallying cry of the religiously inspired political movements. The idea of going back to their cultural roots and of imposing Islamic norms on society was appealing to large segments of the population that were opposed to the increasing Western political and cultural influence. In a few countries, as we shall see, Sharia-based legislation was adopted, whereby criminal legislation usually was the first to be enacted.

Economics systems never lack in movement. They are persistently in transition, and alter as the history and culture of their people alter. They differ as government changes and as reformed theories/concepts of economic management conquer.
A Planned Economy differentiates from a Market Based Economy in several ways; it all comes down to ‘What to Produce’, ‘How to Produce’, and ‘For Whom To Produce’. In a planned economic system ‘What to Produce’ is determined and controlled by the Government, supposedly to benefit the country. In comparison to a Market Economic System, customers are seen as inferior as opposed to ‘scientific, medical and space research, and military production’; these are...

1. The United States and Brazil have their differences in slavery. Slaves in Brazil tended to die younger than North American slaves. Defining the children of slaves as slaves was not as economically important as it was in the United States. Long time Portuguese immigrants to Brazil were mostly male. Also, creating a clear “black-white” dichotomy was not as important as it was in the United States.
2. There are several ways that whitening was pursued. One way is that they encouraged and subsidized the immigration of European workers and completely banned black immigration. Whitening in Brazil also included active encouragement of racial intermarriage to improve black genetics with...

Land is that part of the earth that is not covered by water (Fisher: 1987). It comprises of all naturally occurring resources whose supply is essentially fixed. Without land, man cannot survive: without access to it, man cannot labour. Land is important as all natural resources are fundamental to the production of all goods. Land as a factor of production is of immense importance because land is the original source of all material wealth. Moreover, the economic prosperity of a country is closely linked to the richness of her natural resources, (Hans, et al: 2009).Land is an economic resource as well asan important factor in the formation of individual and collective identity, and in the...

“In an age when man has forgotten his origins and is blind even to his most essential needs for survival, water along with other resources has become the victim of indifference.” – Rachel Carson
Disease. Famine. Death. Words that can send a shiver up the mortal spines of those that are even the coldest at heart. When we talk about the water we drink, or more specifically, the water consumed by the noble people of India, these words not often document an exceptional case but an irrefutable rule. In plain terms, India and its people need clean water; to bathe in, to cook with; to drink. They can achieve this goal though the use of private portable water purification...
