The human cost of corruption is huge, yet all too often leaders
with notoriously corrupt records continue to enjoy lives of luxury
at the expense of people living in grinding poverty. It’s time they
faced the consequence of their actions.
“Corruption will stop only when we collectively fight against it,”
says photographer AM Ahad . “It is crucial that we change the common
mentality of accepting corruption and treat the crime as the terrible
thing that it is.”
www.transparency.org...

Money and corruption are ruining the land, crooked politicians betray
the working man, pocketing the profits and treating us like sheep,
and we're tired of hearing promises that we know they'll never keep.
Ray Davies

The accomplice to the crime of corruption is frequently our own indifference.
Bess Myerson

The fight for justice against corruption is never easy. It never has been
and never will be. It exacts a toll on our self, our families, our friends,
and especially our children. In the end, I believe, as in my case, the price
we pay is well worth holding on to our dignity.
Frank Serpico

It's interesting that these themes of crime and political corruption are
always relevant.
Martin Scorsese

Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road
it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first,
and then corruption, its necessary consequence.
Thomas Jefferson

I would have thought that what Iceland did with the "Banksters" would have placed it higher up the list.

But I'm glad to see that NZ is 'up there' (Despite our PM signing the TPP and all the nonsense surrounding the way Kim Dotcom was treated).

Still it's probably because we are 'hick town' to the big corporates.

Oh look, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan all sit near the worst on that list.

Hasn't the democracy we brought them been transformative

this list is a joke, laughable at best. the mere fact that the USA only came in at 16 considering the astonishing e-mail scandle of hillary clinton that the bovine masses seem to be oblivious to as they chew the cud and graze on by.

Perhaps not quite the mafia run state that the US wants us to believe it is after all

Disclaimer: the legitimacy of this list is clearly in question. Having said that, here is my response to your opinion-

Yea, I know right? Why can't objectivity hate the U.S as much as the rest of the world?

"The accomplice to the crime of corruption is frequently our own indifference.
Bess Myerson"

She hits it on the head, but its only since we have had the web that we can all speak out.

I don't know that by bringing up a list of countries that isn't qualified with evidence as to their placing is quite the way to get to the real culprits.

Surely its by looking at the family cartels and people like Soros that you start to get to the real culprits and a list of those and their means of interfering in other countries and creating things like the refugee situation is really what we need.

I suspect if you look at the family links between the Danish Royal Family and other rulers around, especially the Western World you will find many strutting their wealth as though blood money is something to be proud of obtaining.

This list is a step in the right direction for starting to weed out the culprits and name and shaming them as Bess pointed out to us. Once that's in the open we can then move to prosecute them and redistribute their wealth where they have done the most damage to people's lives.

Ok, let's talk about reality- Can you provide a list that you would favor that shined the U.S in any positive light?

What kind of country is the most corrupt?

A country that shows it is a feudal power pyramid or a country that manipulates people thinking to hide the fact how flawed it really is?

There should be an list of how much lies/simplifications/distractions the wordsmiths politicians/journalist/thinktanks have to tell to keep the people in the country docile.

And Sweden would in that list be worse than UK on that list with it's hiding the facts from the public regarding law and order. Denmark/Iceland/Norway would probably be at top 10 while Sweden would be towards the bottom.

Corruption is THE key factor in whether a society is successful or not. We have nothing else in this world but our word.

I'm not exactly for draconian laws, but in the case of breaking public trust, a bullet to the brain pan and a bill to the family for the cost of said bullet wouldn't lose me any sleep.

I'll just say that it's suspicious (to me) that these "Transparency International" people seem to favor socialist countries.

Especially when we know darn well that morbid internationalism and socialism are such frequent bedfellows.

If you brought up the case of Hillary, the compilers would probably say "That still only counts as one".
They are probably trying to measure how widespread the corruption is, in terms of cases or individuals.

Russia is slightly less corrupt than Uganda. You should be bursting with pride.

We all know that a lot of money ended up in the wrong hands, so unless there is a list with information where exactly the money went, it's useless.

Concerning the list, I'm from Austria and pretty ashamed being equal as the US.


ETA: Ahm, just realized, an European country sends money to Afghanistan (#166) and we wanna talk transparency? Couldn't the money just end up in the country it came from, without anyone ever realizing? (Just a thought)
