It's Time to Get Serious About Global Corruption

The United States should put combating corruption at the center of its development and diplomacy agendas.  While good governance and anticorruption have been a feature of U.S. development policy for decades, the time is right to return to this issue.  For practical and political reasons, the United States should lead the charge in a renewed fight to improve governance, increase transparency, and reduce corruption around the world.
