Show my name as: 
Handle

No criminal charges, but strict liability, big fines, and liability for bribes of private companies as well as public officials.  --" Under the new rule, there are administrative and judicial sanctions. Fines are between 0.1 percent and 20 percent of a company’s gross revenue from the prior year. If gross revenue is not known, fines are between $3,000 and $30 million. The payment does not exempt a company from paying losses generated to the government as a consequence of its wrongdoings.

There is extensive evidence to suggest that social media has fundamentally changed the relationship between corporations and constituents. For example, a 2012 survey by Edelman finds that “listening to customers” for the first time is considered equal in importance to providing a high-quality product or service when it comes to establishing trust.1  Consumers expect to be able to engage with companies through social media, and the vast majority of consumers believe that direct engagement between company and consumer improves brand image.

"How to Bribe" by Transparency International

"The authors state that the purpose of the publication is to “illustrate how bribes are paid in practice, based on legal cases and realistic experiences.” They go on to describe why they took the time and effort to compile 46 pages of bribery scenarios: “to help individuals and companies anticipate, recognize, avoid and resist bribery.”  The authors, based on my experience, accomplish both goals."
