That usually ends up........

 

Honest poor and happy.

 

Dishonest rich and miserable.

 

Then the choice is clear. For most anyway.

With money you can buy everything but friends and respect, being poor you can't buy anything, but earn the respect of your friends... Smiley

It's not black and white, we live in a relatively incorrupt country but if you have to deal with other countries the issues can be more complex as Cameron was saying to her Maj the other day http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/david-cameron-video-corruption-quote-comment-nigeria-a...
