Corruption is a systemic inherent mechanism of the the modem capitalist economy. The forms of corruption are always ahead of the the law, today dominate the different forms of "legalized corruption" (consultant contracts for politicians, rewards for the top management without performance, and similar). The global structure of corruption in different stages is shown by the examples Lockheed, Elf Aquitaine, Enron and private garbage incineration plants in german cities. The actual neoliberal globalism has generated the most advanced stage of national and global corruption in the history of capitalism. The standards are developed mainly in the United States of America. During the last decade anti-corruptionprograms and laws have been elaborated. The worldwide anti-corruption organisation "Transparency International" has reached high estimation in companies und international organisations (World Bank and others) but shows the first signs of collusion.
