321 Views What the US health care system assumes about you

309 Views Innovation is the antidote to corruption
Traditional thinking on corruption goes like this: if you put good laws in place and enforce them well, then economic development increases and corruption falls. In reality, we have the equation backwards, says innovation researcher Efosa Ojomo.
