    Default Corrupt Countries

    I just read the list of the top corrupt countries in the world. The Dominican Republic did not make the list. Haiti did. No surprise there.
    I guess the government here is doing a better job than most of us complain about.

    I wouldn't say they are doing a great job at not being corrupt. It's just that so many other countries are doing a better job at being corrupt.

    I totally agree. This morning we went to Higuey in our crappy little sun faded car. Polica had a propina blockade set up in La Seiba. One look at the car and we where waved through. The Camry behind us that had shiny paint and tinted windows was pulled in. It was also at least 5 years older than our car.
    I guess corupt greed has some blindness too.

    a little corruption is palatable, I hate standing in lines, only place I know you can park your car at the front door of a crowded restaurant and be seated for 10 bucks

    i am not aware of any list that tables corruption by country. i know of the perception index, which is compiled by asking citizens what they think of corruption in the country. the DR ranks better than it should because its people do not find it to be corrupt, even though it is horrendously corrupt.

    I think the list referred to , was compiled by US News ..they always seem to have the best 10 or the worst 10 of everything you can think of .As El Gorgon states, it is just by perception and has little validity . Well Derfish , there have been many examples of politicians doing it for duty in past years and centuries but now the system has changed.
