Hello

 

     How can I translate the word "graft", as in the kind of political corruption?

Graft is when someone uses his political power and influence in order to take advantage or to profit from the public budget. (or something like that..)

 

Also, is there a way of translating the term "engraftment" in the following excerpt:

 

"Both nations [France and England] pursued a strategy of engraftment. Publicly owned government debt would be exchanged for stock in some corporation, which would then hold all the debt."

  

Thanks in advance,
