6. United States and Wal-Mart

Walmart

Believe it or not, Wal-Mart is such a powerful force in the American economy that they are driving down rising prices! Part of Wal-Mart’s slogan is that they always insist on the cheapest prices, so its drive to keep down prices are driving America into one of the longest periods of low inflation rates in the history of United States of America. It may sound bizarre, but remember Wal-Mart is the second biggest corporation in the fortune 500 with profits numbering in the hundreds of billions.

Wal-mart Bribery Scandal:

Federal regulators have taken heat for not cracking down enough on Wall Street misdemeanors, but Washington’s watchdogs have bared their teeth plenty when it comes to investigating the business for foreign corruption.

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) prohibits U.S. companies and people from bribing foreign officials to get or retain business and was enacted in 1977 in the wake of revelations of widespread global corruption. The FCPA was the first act of its kind in the world.

Now a major Wal-Mart bribery scandal in Mexico has cast a spotlight on the FCPA. The company confirmed last year that it was being investigated by the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission after a New York Times bombshell reported that Wal-Mart had paid bribes to Mexican officials to open more stores in the country.

7. Nepal and the penis enlargement industry

 

Penis Enlargement Nepal

In Nepal, there’s this weird fungus/parasite thing that many Chinese believe has Viagra-like powers. It currently costs $50,000 a pound (34,000 more than gold, and 49950 more than viagra) and the industry is shaping the Nepalese government, economy, and day to day life inside the country. During the Nepalese communist revolution, the only reason the rebels were such a threat was because they controlled the taxes gained from the Yarchagumba. The government does not like all the conflict that the Yarchagumba creates so they are making tons of detains.

 

8.  Somalia & Pirates

Somalia Pirates

In a continuous state of civil war since 1991, this country has become synonymous with piracy, probably its most lucrative industry. The millions of dollars in ransom money Somalia’s pirates extract from nervous shipowners each year–Reuters reports 47 ships captured in 2009–fuels on-shore corruption and vicious gang warfare. There are signs of hope for this beleaguered nation: The African Development Bank has promised $2 million to establish a central bank and anti-corruption commission.

The above is an excerpt of a documentary about Somalian pirates. For more information, I recommend that you watch it.

 

9. Afghanistan & Opium Trade

Afghanistan Opium Trade

President Hamid Karzai’s brother is widely reported to have ties to the nation’s virulent opium trade, and even President Obama has felt compelled to lecture Karzai on his government’s reputation for rampant corruption. But with the Taliban still sheltering Osama bin Laden and billions of dollars in U.S. aid for corrupt officials to steal, it is unlikely Afghanistan will clean up its act any time soon.

Afghanistan, in the meantime, is a nominal U.S. ally burdened with the corrupt government of Hamid Karzai, who’s admitted to taking “bags of money” from U.S. enemy Iran in addition to the huge sums of U.S. aid and persuasion money floating around the war-ravaged nation.

 

10. Myanmar & the army

Mynamar Army

The Myanmar Army the land component of the Military of Myanmar, Myanmar Armed Forces. The Myanmar Army is the largest branch of the Armed Forces of Myanmar and has the chief responsibility of carrying out land-based military operations. The Myanmar Army maintains the second largest active force in Southeast Asia after Vietnam’s Vietnam People’s Army.

It also had troop strength of about 350,000 as of 2006 and around 500,000 soldiers in 2012. The army has extensive combat experience in fighting insurgents in rough terrains, considering it has conducted non-stop counter-insurgency operations against ethnic and political insurgents since its inception in 1948.

The force is headed by the Commander in Chief (Army) currently General Soe Win with Vice-Senior General Min Aung Hlaing as the Commander in Chief. The highest rank in the Myanmar Army was Senior General, equivalent to Field Marshal Position in Western Armies and was held by Senior General Than Shwe until his retirement in 2010.
