The stormy waves of financial turbulence that engulfed the world in 2008 prompted central banks globally to take shelter under the umbrella of dovish monetary policies for more than a decade.
These strategies, marked by lower interest rates, served as a lifeline to stimulate growth. However, while they offered a massive respite, they also carried the seeds of long-term ethical and financial tempests, particularly a surge in corruption.

Low Returns and the Quest for Higher Yield: Unveiling the Ethical Quagmire
