For anyone growing up in the 1960s one of the best TV cartoon shows was Rocky and Bullwinkle. As I grew older I came to appreciate the reason for this which was that the show was written for adults so that most of the satire was timeless. It still holds up today, especially if you understand the cultural references. There were other short segments, in addition to the main characters, one of which was entitled “Fractured Fairy Tales” featuring a satirical look at classic fairy tales. So with that inspiration in mind, today we present a fractured fairy tale of some of the challenges which face US companies doing business in Africa in complying with the Foreign Corrupt Practices (FCPA) or UK Bribery Act. In a later post, I will provide some guidance to the issues raised in today’s post.
