The Corrupt Republic

Streaming Video - 2014
Rate this:
They say that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. In China, where local Communist officials are omnipotent and everything from moving to a new house to having a second child requires a permit, corruption has reached unprecedented levels. Billions of dollars have been embezzled and getting anything done usually involves paying a bribe. Realizing that public anger at corruption was threatening Communist Party legitimacy, President Xi Jingping launched a wave of investigations when he came to power in 2012. 'Economic crimes' still carry the death penalty and in the past two years, over 300,000 officials have been punished-including 'Red Prince' and Politburo member, Bo Xilai. But is this enough to save the system?
