How to fight corruption in Nepal

The Nepalese government plans to issue pants to airport workers that have no pockets.

A spokesman said trousers without pockets would help the authorities “curb the irregularities”.

The move comes after the prime minister of Nepal said corruption was damaging the airport’s reputation, AFP reported.

Apparently without pockets it is harder to take bribes.  (You also can file this under "Carrying costs > liquidity premium.")  The pointer is from Air Genius Gary Leff, who I might add is allowed to wear pockets.
