Episode 218 — The Biden Administration’s New Strategy on Countering Corruption
The Biden Administration announced a new, comprehensive anti-corruption initiative, the United States Strategy on Countering Corruption. The new anti-corruption initiative is the follow on to the earlier announcement elevating the global anti-corruption battle to a national security concern. After that announcement, the Biden Administration conducted a 200-day inter-agency examination to develop a comprehensive government-wide anti-corruption initiative.
The 38-page plan released last week outlines steps for cracking down on criminal actors and their networks while improving cooperation among federal agencies and law enforcement. The Biden Administration announced plans to increase financial transparency and new regulations on U.S. real-estate purchases to prevent money laundering.
In this Episode, Michael Volkov reviews the new initiative.
