Abstract

As a developing country experiences growth, a sense of entitlement and expectations of reward also grow among resource management groups. Khurshed Alam terms this “bulge hunger” and writes that – if left unchecked – the growing greed can result in increased corruption among managerial and guardian classes at the expense of less powerful citizens. Here he draws on the case of Bangladesh as an example, and outlines possible actions the government could take if it were serious about tackling the escalating problem.
