keep believing in the indexes of people's perceptions
about their countries' corruption levels. in nations in which the media is inevitably tied to commercial interests, the general public is only gonna get access to certain things.
Most people are of course unaware (thanks again, free press), hence why we fare relatively well in those so called indexes.
Who ever said it was ''people's perceptions''?
You are so lucky to be so different and unique as to be not one of the general public. But then, that is not the ''people's perception'', just your own.
But at least the answer you came up with to my statement that the path to least corruption has been overwhelmingly shown to be the western economic model is ''right.''
Not much else you could say, actually.
