    1. Greed

    2. Power

    People that are greedy will do almost anything to have more. Look at B. Madoff. He was very wealthy and wanted more.

    Drug lords.....the more they sell, the more money they get.

    Medicare fraud....doctors want more money

    welfare fraud....people want more money

    Drug use with athletes....they can make more money

    Power

    Look at Nixon....all it was was he wanted to retain his power

    Politicians....some become corrupt to hold onto their power

    Union leaders like Hoffa wanted power and money

    Is the ruler of N. Korea not corrupt? why not? Power.

    and when you have lots of money...you gain a lot of power.

    The lack of love in their lives...at least that's one of the causes.

    greed, societal attitude, habit. Once it was written that if a public official did not use his position for his personal gain he should be removed for malfeasance.
