Excerpt from "Time to integrate competition and anti-corruption enforcement?", by David Vascott:
Calvin S. Goldman, Q.C., a partner at Goodmans in Canada and a member of the OECD’s Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC), said that businesses and other investors abhor unpredictability and prefer stable governments and the rule of law. Consequently, he said, it is important to realise that bribery and corruption “is a two-way street”, with supply and demand. Enforcement should focus on the demand side of corruption as well supply: government officials who accept bribes should also be investigated and prosecuted.
