A MIASMA OF CORRUPTION

Posted on: February 9, 2022

UN Convention Against Corruption - Administrative Control and Transparency  Authority

THIS POST IS A PRESENTATION OF A 1996 PAPER BY STEFAN HALPER ABOUT THE UNITED NATIONS

PART-1: WHAT STEFAN HALPER SAID IN 1996 (IN MY WORDS)

THE UNITED NATIONS IS AN ORGANIZATION WITH AN ALMOST TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY. THIS CONDITION IN A PUBLIC SERVICE ORGANIZATION CREATES CORRUPTION, MISMANAGEMENT, FRAUD, WASTE, AND ABUSE OF AUTHORITY AND RESOURCES. THIS IS WHY UN BUDGETS ARE SHROUDED IN SECRECY. THERE IS NO TRANSPARENCY IN THE PERFORMANCE OF ITS MYRIAD BUREAUCRACIES. THEY ARE OPAQUE. IT IS TELLLING THAT THE UNITED NATIONS IS UNWILLING TO UNDERGO AN AUDIT. THE UNITED NATIONS IS IN DIRE NEED OF REFORM.

PART-2: WHAT I HAD WRITTEN IN A SIMILAR VEIN IN 2016: LINK: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2794991

ABSTRACT: The United Nations is financed mostly by taxpayers from a few donor countries but the large and growing bureaucracy is too far removed from those taxpayers to be directly accountable to them. It is run by unelected, unaccountable, undisciplined, and incompetent bureaucrats. The organization’s size, budget, and scope are unconstrained. The budget funding process provides perverse incentives for these bureaucrats to increase the size and scope of their organization simply by creating multitudes of agencies and programs, and by inventing problems and environmental crises set on a global scale.
