Will corruption ever be eradicated?

Corruption exists in every country and every walk of life in one form or another. Very subtle in developed countries but out in the open in poor, non-democratic countries. In the latter it is often encouraged by western companies which use it to gain contracts.
What can we do to help get rid of this plague?

However, it can be managed down to negligible levels using self-interest and greed of which we have more than enough. Altruism in this approach is useful but not necessary.

    I won't expand on this here, you can read more at CorruptionManagement.com. Disclaimer: I'm a partner in that venture.
