  • Getting around corruption anyway I can

    Eric Gonzalez

    I was the Director of an Anti-Poverty program and all of my staff were convinced I needed to pay a bribe. They all gave me my opinions on how much I needed to pay. 30% of the overall value and a bottle of Jack Daniels was the consensus.

If you suddenly woke up here with no idea where you were, you’d assume it was Cairo or Casablanca.
