Let us all take a lesson in critical reading from the above article Transparency International's Corruption Perception Index, "gauges perceptions of public sector corruption around the world based on surveys taken of business executives and experts". Let me emphasize the relevant section, "gauges perceptions of public sector corruption". It gauges the *perception* of corruption. A nation could be the least corrupt, and put as many laws and money as possible to fighting corruption, and still rank poorly because they are *perceived* to have a higher level of corruption. Why does anyone regard that index with any degree of relevancy?
