Corruption Index 2012

Transparency International has released their Corruption Perceptions Index 2012, complete with an video that explains the purpose of the index and what corruption is.

For librarians, this index can help to answer the questions:
  • How safe is my investment in this country? 
  • How much of my philanthropy/donations get to the people who really need it? 
  • If I travel to this country, how likely is it that a bribe will be necessary for business? 
  • My foreign service exam/international studies course included a question about corruption: what countries are the most corrupt?
