An evocative analysis on the effects of when companies form corporate policies and then stand in tandem with them as seen in their corporate activities. This research has its roots in the liberal arts but cuts across several general management themes in ethics and corporate governance. It adopts a Kantian and systems approach in understanding corporate governance and the global business environment. It examines the implications and repercussions of when there are irregularities; when corporate bodies flout rules or codes of conduct set by themselves and by regulators. The research then identifies the gaps and disconnections between corporate policies and unethical corporate behavior. The cases studied were the Halliburton bribery scandal and the Siemens Bribery Scandal, both in Nigeria. It opens in roads in understanding government-business relations and how corruption affects the firm.
