This seems very biased and even corrupt itself, created for ‘developed’ Western countries to look better than less developed countries, but does not seem to include wars, weapon selling and the environmental havoc, caused by those from western countries, the index should be updated to be more truthful, i.e. each country should also be measured to include companies based on its shores and individuals from, who trade and use corruption in other countries to their benefit
Is it corrupt for companies to use images and words to sell products in a false way, to seem healthy, or necessary to life, or to be a successful member of society you need this brand or that, this is to me also a corruption, a dishonesty to exploit people, through physiological means, and people are not educated about these types of manipulation, it’s legal so therefor I guess not classes as corrupt, but no doubt has the same effects as what TA uses to measure their specific types of corruption, for some people to gain through the exploitation of others.
Please comment if you have ideas, and especially a positive angle on this.
Thanks for reading, Sam.
