Prince Albert of Monaco pledged to fight rampant corruption and money laundering in his Principality.
He hired a spymaster, and later, a chief-of-staff, to assist him in this endeavor.
But when faced with a little resistance from corrupt influences around him, the Prince caved and reneged on promises he made to his spymaster, chief-of-staff, subjects, foreign intelligence services, and the world—and became complicit in their corruption.
This was a learning experience—one that we transformed into a teaching experience.
