Wager's I'm Willing to Make

From the Chicago Tribune:
A fatal construction crane collapse at the site of a luxury high-rise condominium Friday, the second such disaster in Manhattan in less than three months....
The city's buildings commissioner resigned a month later, and a building inspector was arrested and charged with reporting false inspections of the site.
If we discover that the managers of the construction firms paid bribes to the building commissioner for false inspection reports, then I'd be willing to make the following wagers:
  1. The construction firms that employed the bribing managers will be out-of-business within the year, never to build again.
  2. The city government agency that employed the bribed building commissioner will still be conduct inspections of construction sites.
