Current events that are a direct result of corruption

Resently I was very ill and missed a ton of school I have two more assingments to do and I would like to foucus all my time on the final essay. Tmy online class is due this wednesday please help me!

research current events that are a direct result of corruption. You will find one current event that has taken place within the last 10 years by researching various web sites. You will find one current event to summarize using the SWBS (somebody, wanted, but, so … ) format. Be sure your summary includes the following:

  • at least one paragraph written in the SWBS form
  • proper use of grammar, syntax, and other language conventions
  • proper citation of sources using MLA format

Though the banking/financial crisis in the US would be difficult to summarize, there is an argument to be made that the situation came about through a corruption (or set of corruptions) both individual and systemic. 

The gulf oil spill (the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico) is another example of a particular type of corruption causing damage (the corruption of the regulation system).

First, I am glad you are feeling better.  I've been there!  Don't be afraid to reach out to teachers for help, even in an online class.

You might want to find something local to investigate.  You could also use the recent Chase bank debacle.  Chase (somebody) wanted to make more money (wanted) but the investment bankers got greedy so the bank ended up losing two billion dollars and getting bad press.

Here is a link to a short story on the Chase issue:
