can see :the us are more corrupted than chilefrance more than uruguaymalta (UE-27!) more than porto rico and bostwana....maybe it was not so obvious. right ?A certain amount of corruption is the price to pay for freedom of speech, mass vote, freedom of commerce and investment.Democratic countries also get their malpractices public, so that they are exposed to the voters. Democracy may not the best system but it is the less dangerous for the daily life of the average joe. So many people still move to Europe / North America looking for a job and a better life. The other way round is called "buen retiro".
