#19 out of 177 countries ranked isn't too shabby. I wonder just what lengths we would go to for a #1 ranking if this were something we cared about, like sports. Maybe we'd cheat in order to get there. ;)

Noah, I'm trying to view the credibility of the stats on the source you provided but I can't seem to find the factors that went into making the list. Good chart though.

Here is who the source is according to them: www.transparency.org/whoweare… and here is who they are according to wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transpa…

They don't seem controversial from what I can tell.

this is a fairly detailed report. Looks very credible. Pretty interesting too.
