ETHIOPIA: THE CONUNDRUM OF ILLICIT FINANCIAL FLOWS
In an extraordinary book titled Lying: Moral Choice in Public and Private Life, (1) Sissela Bok wrote about truth, deception, white lies, excuses, the justification for lies, lying in a crisis, as well as permissible lies and their consequences. The book was first published in 1978, and I dusted up my old copy to see what new insights, if any, I might glean from it to help explain the rising tide of illicit financial flows. It would have been incomplete, insufficient and a disservice to readers to attempt and explain the phenomenon purely in economic terms alone.
