Corruption in Mexico, a growing problem
Corruption has existed on humanity since long time ago, and this practice has become a tendency in all type of organizations, which begins when a service provider or company tries to take an economic advantage by conditioning their help to people who is needing those services or products.
Among many of the problems caused by corruption acts, we can find the a reduced credibility and legitimacy in an institution or the government, especially when acts of this type keep on happening and are seen as a more natural practice every day.
“Corruption brings with itself some other consequences, such as extortions, frauds, influence peddling, loss of ethics among some other problems. This is why it is very important to avoid making these practices that will only benefit those parts who will try to take advantage of these acts”, commented Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.
In Mexico, there is a widespread culture of illegality, which means that a huge number of persons for which law does not exist. For this reason, recipients and beneficiaries believe that a simple “bribe” could accelerate any procedures and prefer to do it than to going through a bureaucratic system.
The corruption acts damage a big amount of Mexican enterprises, as well as Mexican people, as once they pay to make processes faster, they have to pay an amount that would affect their finances, as the only benefited person is the one who receives bribes.
“Corruption is a part of a social phenomenon that attacks all social classes, it is through corrupt acts that a person can make a fortune at the expense of the others, for this reason avoiding any type of corruption will benefit us all”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
