Default Country Corruption rating in the World

This is certainly way off topic but I found it interesting how bad certain countries are.

We tend to think of the US and not as corrupt as others but we ranked #20.

Iraq wasn't even the worse one. There is one worse than that and it is close to us.

You can find out more about it here. Look at the Corruption map below for a general overview.

Take a look a this rating system:

Default RE: Country Corruption rating in the World

I have to say I am fairly dubious of this ranking. How do they compile this information, what criteria, who is this organization? Corruption is generally abuse of power to the level of criminal activity isn't it? How much corruption goes unreported & thus unavailable to use as data for something like this. How do they get data from tightly closed countries?

It appears this list is ranked least corrupt to most corrupt right? It is certainly interesting if you accept the findings.

Default RE: Country Corruption rating in the World

Forgive me, but I find ratings like these to be extremely bias. The countries on the lower end are the ones that I believe are the more corrupt and the ones on the top are the ones I believe are the least corrupt.

You are exactly right the top ones are the least corrupt and the bottom ones are the worse.

Sorry I forgot the web link: http://www.transparency.org/news_roo...6__1/cpi_table

Corporations use this information to help fight against illegally or accidentally selling high tech products to terroristic countries which is breaking the law.
