En esta gran diversidad de dinámicas y complejidades a las que nos nfrentamos, la corrupción o el abuso del poder público para beneficio personal, se ha convertido en uno de los problemas que más afecta a la mayor parte de los procesos sociales, políticos y económicos de una sociedad, Cotte, (2014), Cotte y Lancheros (2015). Este fenómeno origina bajo y lento desarrollo económico, debilita las instituciones democráticas y genera inestabilidad política, social e inseguridad que usualmente puede conducir a generar altos niveles de violencia. De acuerdo con estudios realizados por el World Bank. (2000) y la Oficina de las Naciones Unidas contra la Droga y el Delito - UNODC (2011), más de 1 billón de dólares es pagado en sobornos cada año; de igual forma, el valor de los actos de corrupción y las actividades comerciales fraudulentas asociadas aumenta hasta un monto de US $ 1,1 billones de dólares anuales. Estos datos son considerados como una estimación relativamente baja con respecto a los sobornos pagados en todo el mundo,tanto en países desarrollados y en vías de desarrollo. 2018-09-22 info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion Editorial https://revistas.usantotomas.edu.co/index.php/cife/article/view/4663 spa https://revistas.usantotomas.edu.co/index.php/cife/article/view/4663/4362 https://revistas.usantotomas.edu.co/index.php/cife/article/view/4663/html Copyright (c) 2018 Revista CIFE: Lecturas de Economía Social http://revistas.usantotomas.edu.co/index.php/cife/article/view/4663/4362 application/pdf text/html Universidad Santo Tomás Revista CIFE: Lecturas de Economía Social; Vol. 19, Núm. 31 (2017); 11-15 Revista CIFE: Lecturas de Economía Social; Vol. 19, Núm. 31 (2017); 11-15 22484914 01243551
