Which do you feel is the most corrupt country?
With emphasis on "feel" I find it very interesting the way each of us perceive reality. The world is a huge place, what do you think? Who deserves the "title"?
The newly constituted Roman Empire, which is a conglomeration of the US and Europe.
You can wheedle out corruption in every country, to try and dertimine which is the worse would be an impossible task. Wherever you get governments, ie people in a position to legislate the population, there will be many of those leaders who aim to fleece their own pockets, especially in those countries wher people put them selves up for election, people who choose to control do it for one reason, they want power and the attendent luxury.
Sorry, ElderYoungMan, are you suggesting that the power structure of the developed world is more corrupt than, say, Mugabe, or those war torn African countries where those in power take the aid we send for the starving, and use for their own benefit?
Perhaps the emphasis should be on 'think' rather than 'feel', people feel too much rather than think.
Well I don't know the exact sense of your question. But the facts suggest that "Somalia" in Africa is the most corrupt country in the world followed by "Myanmar" in Asia.
Other than that South Asian countries like India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka tend to obtain lower scores as compared to European nations like Britain, France and Germany.
Asian countries like Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore are very less corrupt compared to China, North Korea and Russia in North-east Asia.
African countries are more corrupt due to lack of formidable governance, tribal warfare and various other issues. Clear exceptions are South Africa and North African nations.
Usually though Algeria, Egypt and various other North African countries are rated as more corrupt.
MORE THAN THAT THE PRESENCE OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND VARIOUS OTHER FACTORS CAN BE COUNTERBALANCING TO THE GRAVE EFFECTS OF CORRUPTION IN SOME COUNTRIES.
By saying that at least I can pull India out of the list about which I have knowledge. Because too much revolt against various corruption related issues forces the government to investigate and take more logical decisions.
I am sure this happens in other countries as well and this usually is not taken into consideration while measuring the corruption index.
I say Ukraine, where everything is solved with money. It is very hard even for students to pass exams without bribing lectures, and it is done openly. This really sucks.
The one that starts the most wars with or without collaboration & for "Economic" reasons.
This is based on perception like it is stated. What we perceive to be corrupt may not be what is corrupt in other areas. Some places adapt to different culture and we must be mindful and open to this. Like a battle between good and evil, each side thinks that they are good.
But why do *my* feelings matter? I've only been to a handful of countries, and wouldn't consider that those trips taught me much about how corrupt they were--in none of them did I personally encounter bribe-taking, etc.
So, I'd tend to look at the periodic rankings based on the 'feelings' of folks doing business around the world. They'd have some basis for making a judgement.
But, just to play the game you set up--the first name that came to my mind was "Nigeria." I've read that corruption is pretty endemic there, and it's the only country that has a scam actually named after it, as far as I know. And I have been approached online by folks from, or claiming to be from, that nation who appeared to be taking the classic approach for the "Nigerian scam."
