In this paper, two countries, one developing the other developed are compared, from the perspective of fraud and corruption. The levels of fraud and corruption are examined through league tables and cases of fraud. An explanatory framework is developed for the observed phenomena. The conclusion is reached, based on the evidence presented that over the past ten years, both Zambia and Ireland have become increasingly more corrupt and fraudulent.
