How corruption in the government contributes to poverty.
The World Bank has defined the corruption as "the abuse of public office for private gain.”
- ‘Uncompromised political will’ needed to counter worsening corruption — TI” The PCIJ Blog. 24 May. 2008. Web. 3 Jul. 2012. 
“There are many conditions that may trap individuals, groups, and whole economies in poverty. Among these are social and political conditions such as corruption and kin systems (Bowles et al. 2006). For instance, inequality in the provinces of the Philippines has been empirically proven to have negatively affected their growth (Balisacan 2007). Inequality in the country has been rooted historically in the ownership of land (Corpuz 1997). Corruption has been described as “chronic” in the Philippines and has been a negative factor or investments. Influences such as networks, role models, beliefs, and aspirations can also transmit poverty or affluence from generation to generation (Ray 2006).”

Truth in Media

  • PDF
“The positive development of the media at the service of the common good is a responsibility of each and every one,. Because of the close connections the media have with economics, politics and culture, there is required a management system capable of safeguarding the centrality and dignity of the person, the primacy of the family as the basic unit of society and the proper relationship among them.”
-Pope John Paul II in his apostolic letter, "The Rapid Development," February 2005 
The following are the words of Pope john Paul II: 
“One must remember that the proper aim and task of social communications is service to the truth and its defence.’ It means that information in the media should be presented in an objective and reliable way, avoiding manipulation and the attitude that is corruptible towards the truth.”
