The 2010 world corruption index by country

With governments committing huge sums to tackle the world’s most pressing problems, from the instability of financial markets to climate change and poverty, corruption remains an obstacle to achieving much needed progress.

This is the conclusion of the most recent corruption perceptions index published by Transparency International.

The 2010 Corruption Perceptions Index shows that nearly three quarters of the 178 countries in the index score below five, on a scale from 10 (highly clean) to 0 (highly corrupt).

These results indicate a serious corruption problem, which, if not tackled could provide the platform for further economic and political instability for the future of global development.

      Sorry, I don’t know the name of the artist, but it is a great picture depicting the dark side of human nature. I will do some research and post the name of the artist if I can identify him. In the meantime, if any other reader knows, please could you share the information.
