Abstract

Corruption, government inefficiency, the lack of transparency in the financial markets, the uncontrolled mix of public sector and private economy activity, the deficient regulation of the conflict of interest and the escalation of organised crime, constitute as many obstacles to the economic development and welfare of a country. The financial crises also caused by the simultaneous and converging input of all these factors is proof enough. Lately the tendency is to search for examples in Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe even though, in a not so distant past, examples just as numerous and serious can be found in all the other continents.
