Sure, just because some corruption cases leaked out to the press, we've worsened? The guvament supposedly is handeling the problem, and Argentina is WAY worse than Chile!

Well yeah, by it's very nature corruption is almost impossible to measure, and the rankings are based on "surveys of businessmen, analysts and residents' views of the prevalence of bribes and theft. The TI defines corruption as abuse of public office for private gain. "

So I guess if you have had some high-profile cases, it is likely it will influence people's views of its prevalence.

My favourite paper at uni was 'State and Corporate Crime' - VERY interesting.

Just saw the rankings on the paper...
Chile fell 3 places from 17 to 20th and the US from 16 to 18th place.

NZ also fell from 2nd to 3rd place!
