They use "corruption perception" measurements because corruption is
too hard to measure.

Still, Zimbabwe scores better than Russia. To me, that means their
measures are at least a little flawed. I read an economic analysis
that stated that, when corruption is high, voters, if they are
allowed, will tend to vote for smaller government. I assume the
reverse is true, if corruption perception is low, voters will tend to
agree to expand government. If and when I find that link, I will send

I wouldn't advise, though, blogging about corruption in state-owned
companies if the perception is that corruption is high: http://bit.ly/h9vEA1.
