Battling Corruption with Pete Turner
This is the second time I’ve joined the wonderful Pete Turner on his Break It Down Show. Today, we discussed corruption in Ukraine and Russia. How do we help address it? How do we ensure that the aid we are sending isn’t falling into a black hole?
How do we define “Oligarch?”
Can the bad guys—the corrupt, the kleptocrats, the traitors—be rehabilitated enough for us to trust them with our money?
Has Ukraine made enough progress against corruption?
How have things changed?
Pete and I delve into all that and more.
These are issues that are full of complexities and nuance. If someone tells you they know what’s going on or how to defeat corruption and ensure that our aid is being wisely used, walk away. They have no idea what they’re talking about.
