Interesting initiative to combat corruption

I urge you to visit a site (after reading the rest of this post), http://www.ipaidabribe.com/, and see how citizen voices can start to be louder in the fight against corruption and bribery.

First, see this article in the Economic Times as a gentle introduction to the site and its purpose.

Then, watch this video by one of the founders.

Don’t think that this is limited to bribery and corruption in India, although that is where this all started. When you go to the site (now is fine), you will see that 8 other countries are now represented and 9 more are ‘coming soon’.

Bribery and corruption are not limited to these 16 nations. Can we get something started for the US, UK, and other nations?

I invite you to support this initiative and welcome your comments.

    Norman – good pick up. I will be interested to watch the site as it matures (being in the Economic Times will help its profile!) as this is a classic example of where the wisdom (or the sufferance) of the crowds can have a real impact. Interestingly that this is a non government website as there is clearly no or minimal trust in reporting to the relevant agency directly. Tom

    What might something like this do for the construction industry in the NY metropolitan area? Just to name a starting place.
