How Corrupt is Your Country?

Anti Corruption in IndiaGreat news! In the early 1990s, I read an article in the Sunday Times which pinned Nigeria and Pakistan as the most corrupt countries in the world. How things have changed! They are both neck and neck with having less corruption than 32 other countries according to Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index for 2012. Their study measures the public sector corruption on a scale of 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (highly clean). Denmark, Finland and New Zealand come joint first place as the least corrupt countries in the world, yet UK and USA do not fare as well coming 17th and 19th respectively.

There are no two ways about it. Not only does corruption destroy lives and communities, it threatens the stability of entire nations. As two thirds of countries score below 50, they conclude that we have a serious global problem at hand. The suffering of humanity is severely exacerbated by corruption, which includes an increase in poverty, disease and hunger.

The current economic crisis that many countries, such as Greece, Portugal, Spain and Italy, are hit by with full force are as a result of corruption at work within the public sector of the respective countries, the European Union and a collapse in  the public’s confidence in institutions and corporations. The numerous protests, demonstrations and civil unrest taking place these aforementioned countries may just be a prelude to civil war thanks to governments doing too little too late. Compassion is replaced by corruption. Unity has been replaced by greed. It is time for individual members of the public to reclaim their power that they unwittingly handed over to people who have little interest in the welfare of the public.

Love and gratitude,
