A few days ago, I became aware of an interesting blog exposing corruption in New Zealand – http://laudafinem.com. According to Transparency International, New Zealand is one of the least corrupt countries in the world. I will recommend reading the articles at http://laudafinem.com. My conclusion after reading some of them was that the claim that New Zealand is one of the least corrupt countries in the world, seems to be no more truthful than many of the other placements on Transparency International’s list.
