Bribes and Deception
Gregory O. Clark
Regent University

In the case study this week, I am supposed to be an export manager of a United States steel company that provide heavy beams and plates for huge construction projects. The company that I worked for has been unfruitful the past couple of year and are now looking to generate business oversea in South America.

Exodus 23:8 “And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the clear-sighted and subverts the cause of those who are in the right.” (Holy Bible, 1971)
