Former President Suharto of Indonesian once famously dismissed the concern

over his country’s corruption by saying:

Well you come out here from Washington with these high ideas to tell us about corruption.

manifested is depicted in event (q) from Question 4 above. This practice weakened the banking sector so severely that it collapsed into a financial crisis as soon

as growth in Indonesian began to slow and borrowers of actual loans started to

default on their debt repayments for purely economic reasons.)

For example, a child with a seizure disorder may be described as healthy and protected by higher powers in the H’mong culture, whereas the same child may be described as ill and disabled in a Western culture.” (Fadiman, 1997)
