Hello ATS,

I've recently subscribed to TEDTalks on the youtube. Pretty great stuff, usually.
This one was uploaded very recently, and at first I was hesitant to watch this 18 minute long video - as I figured I knew about corruption enough already. Beating a dead horse by now, right? Well Afra Raymond happens to break it down in a very understandable way, making the video invaluable as a "sharing device" for those who may still be on the 'fence' for how bad Corruption really is - on a fundamental level.

Please check it out, you might find it enlightening.




"If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention."


Trinidad and Tobago amassed great wealth in the 1970s thanks to oil. But in 1982, a shocking fact was revealed -- that 2 out of every 3 dollars earmarked for development had been wasted or stolen. This has haunted Afra Raymond for 30 years. Shining a flashlight on a continued history of government corruption, Raymond gives us a reframing of financial crime.


Enjoy.
