In 1995, I helped to launch the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index – the new one has just been published and it is more robust than ever and covers 180 countries. Here are some insights – do share and comment, regards, Frank Vogl
Some of the countries that do best in Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index are where kleptocrats place their dirty cash.
Denmark ranks Number 1 as the least corrupt in the Transparency International 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index published yesterday.
But note this: Denmark’s leading bank, Danske Bank, has won the “2018 Corrupt Actor of the Year award” from the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP).
This is convincing proof that corruption, in its many manifestations, is universal….more at theGlobalist.
