PART ONE: Reading (14pts)



Bribery is the crime of giving or receiving something of value to
influence official action. Both the person giving and the person
receiving the bribe are guilty of bribery. Bribery is illegal for two
reasons. First, itusually involves a public official using his or her office for personal gain. Second, it can cause officials to make unfair decisions that affect citizens.

Usually, a person who bribes a public official is paying to get
special treatment. This special treatment can come in many forms. For
example, a company might bribe an official to win a government
contract. Bribing a public official is the most common type of
bribery. In the United States,
officials convicted of bribery may be fired, removed from office, and
sent to prison for up to 20 years. Commercial bribery, the bribery of
owners or employees of private companies, is also illegal in many
places, but it is less commonly punished.

No one knows how often people commit bribery, but many experts
believe that most people who bribe officials are never caught. Bribery
is more common in some countries or parts of countries than in
others. Many countries have made it illegal to bribe
officials from other countries. Bribery and similar illegal transactions
in the political sphere alone cost the world an estimated one
trillion dollars every year. Poor nations have been found to be
particularly exposed to bribery and other corrupt activities, though
even the wealthiest nations are not safe.
