Let’s say that you work for a large multi-national US firm as the VP of Purchasing. Your firm has been trying to get a large contract approved with a foreign government.

If you were asked to provide a small tip to an officer of the foreign government to get this contract approved and signed would you? Think deeply. This is outside of the US. Read the section on the government market in chapter 6 for some guidance in framing your response.
