      The TI CORRUPTION PERCEPTIONS INDEX 2011 is out.

      Spain placed 31, just above Botswana 😀

      Not great, but could be a lot worse. Just look at Italy!

      Not bad at all for Spain and I’m not surprised at all about Italies numbers. Very proud of the Scandinavian countries plus Finland.

      As I have said earlier about Spain is that you don’t have to deal directly with corruption as a normal citizen but as soon as you open up for example a restaurant you need to grease the wheels a little bit to get things going with local bureaucrats. Most of the times it’s not even about the actual value of the bribe but that the person wants to feel important and respected. This sort of corruption is ofcourse not good but it’s far from the worst sort of corruption. What it does though is that it’s hightens the level of what normal people accepts in society which enables the really bad sort of corruption when it comes to local and federal government contracts, building permits etc.

      As usual Iceland gets a good score. A country so corrupt they can hobble any survey like this.

      I notice thats even though Poland is corrupt, its actually the least so amongst the former communist states. I quite like that you can get better treatment of you pull a favour..
