Abstract

Corruption today threatens the strength and international credibility of the People’s Republic of China’s emerging new economy, and is in fact a main issue for the regime critics. Here, the practitioner-academician is asking and probing, “What make Chinese societies more predisposed or prone to corruption? Is this true? If so, what are the key reasons for this? If not, are there any mitigating reasons for it?” Several suggested solutions to limit the problem of corruption are also put forth and examined. Among other things, he puts forth the argument for the reinstatement of (Confucian leadership, the Rectification of Names and) values so as to minimize or reduce the menace of corruption.

 

Keywords: Corruption, international credibility, economy, Confucian values, Chinese gods, Tuah Peh Kong, Fu Lu Shou.
