What is the yardstick for measuring corruption in a country?
There is a general notion that corruption level in Africa is dropping, at what standard is the level determined.
Well, Africa needs to get rid of Omar al-Bashir and Robert Mugabe as soon as possible. Maybe corruption goes away when the people responsible for it also go away (one way or another).
The more religious and ignorant the people are, the more likely the government is to be corrupt. That is why the so-called western countries are going down the tubes to join those countries we used to laugh at.
I would say that if there is less of a discrepancy between the wealth of the rulers and the people then there is less corruption. The more money the government (or whatever warlords of enforcers) steals from the people, the more corrupt they are.
