To Uproot Corruption in Indonesia.

Zak Georgitsis's insight:

This article talks about how corruption and other illegal acts will not 
     stop automatically because there is more democracy and change in government 
     in Indonesia. The article also talks about about how Indonesia could stop 
     the corruption. "It is difficult it will require a strategy that covers a 
     range of issues having a significant impact on the integrity of the 
     service. A similar effort will be needed to upgrade the professionalism". 
     Corruption continues to be a problem in Indonesia and government officials 
     are working to improve it.

What a mess!(corruption and anarchy in Indonesia)(Column)

Zak Georgitsis's insight:

This article talks about the state of the government in Indonesia. 
     Indonesia has been known as one the most corrupt countries in the world. 
     "With a bombing at the Jakarta Stock Exchange, with the corrupt former 
     President Suharto having been declared too ill to stand trial and with the 
     murder of three u.n. staffers in west timor by a mob tacitly backed by 
     indonesian army units, Indonesia today is a mess". This quote shows that 
     corruption is a major problem in Indonesia. Indonesia is the worlds fourth 
     most populated country. In messy states the old authority would enforce 
     controcts and collected taxes but president suharto in Indonesia has broken 
     down and has not been replaced by a new authority that can do the same 
     thing the result is corruption of power in which neither the army, the 
     parliament, the executive nor the remnants of the old order can help.

Indonesia learns from Philippines Program on Poverty Reduction, Social Development.

Zak Georgitsis's insight:

The article talks about how people from indonesia observes the 
     Philippines in an effort to reduce poverty and improve social development. 
     Indonesia tries to learn from the Pantawid Pamilyan Pilipino Program (4Ps) 
     wich is the program that the Philipines used to reduce poverty and improve 
     social development. after learning from the Philippines indonesia 
     implemented a similar program of their own called the program Kelagrua 
     Harapan, or Hopeful Family program. Indonesia implemented its conditional 
     cash transfer (CCT) program in july 2007. The prom targeted 500,000 poor 
     households and is expected to reach 6.5 million households by 2015. 
     Indonesia uses the Philippines (4Ps) as its model for spreading its CCT 
     program. As the Philipines and Indonesia work to improve the lives of their 
     citizens it is expected tht the rlationship between the countries will be 
     strengthened.
