    Corruption is the inevitable effect of a strategy of building socialism in a single country instead of advancing the world revolution.

    Well at least they are trying to improve the situation. Remember when Yang Dacai was photographed smiling at the scene of a fatal accident? He was promptly sacked for 'serious wrongdoing.' China is also moving to eliminate wrongdoings in financial circles but there's an awful long way to go to improve things - look at statistics on the least transparent companies worldwide in 2012 and see which ones come last.
