They go hand in hand all over the world........Every politician is corrupt and that is the main reason why countries like India and Ghana are not prospering...

Con

To say such a thing while not totally unfounded is hasty to say the least. While political corruption is one reason why Ghana and India aren't taking-off, there are many other causes - independent of the corruption variable - that should be considered.

Corruption is a universal concept, similar to hatred, revenge or malice and is as common in politics as it is in other fields.

Corruption is not exclusive to politics nor is politicking a singular quest to exploit the vulnerability of the system.

If they did'nt go together then why would the progress of countries like India and Pakistan be halted like this?I agree that not all politicians are corrupt.But the main reason why a country does'nt prosper is basically political corruption.Right??
