When you have to pay expeditors to shepherd your petition for permission to operate a business through Byzantium, you are pretty much ruled by bureaucrats. I have heard that in India and Mexico and some other countries, bureaucrats are incentivized by expressions of graditude – discretely proffered, of course – to expedite paperwork as well. Are these expeditors then those sorts of ‘grease monkeys’?

But using an expeditor in a foreign country leaves you subject to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and could mean fines and/or jail time.

Maybe that should be the slogan for these guys: Build In America. Keep the Corruption LOCAL!
