Or: the scourge of corruption

Is corruption always bad? “There are no absolutes. If your wife is being held in a concentration camp, then you might be tempted to bribe the guard. But in general what corruption does is that it eats away at trust. It’s bad for business and bad for politics.” The man speaking ought to know. For many years, Peter Eigen – my latest guest on Talking Germany – has been at the forefront of international efforts to combat corruption.

Peter Eigen’s Movie Pick

Peter Eigen is a musician and a great music lover. So no surprise that two of his favourite movies involve music. Firstly, Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot with Tony Curtis on saxophone, Jack Lemmon on bass and Marilyn Monroe on vocals (and ukulele!). Then, the Coen brothers’ Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? with its wonderful bluegrass soundtrack.
