India & Corruption: Politicians Stealing Food

There is no end to the different corruption schemes in India - Bloomberg covers how politicians are "stealing" food, and making money of it. This are the kind of things that are shameful. Bloomberg reports that investigations of massive food scams have gone on for years, but there have been no convictions.

Instead, as much as $14.5 billion in food was looted by corrupt politicians and their criminal syndicates over the past decade in Kishen’s home state of Uttar Pradesh alone, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

All the different scams in India - this is democracy, capitalism gone awry ..... and one of these days may end up being catastrophic.
