Graft as never before in Latin America

Thursday, October 24, 2019


Corruption has rarely before been an issue of such burning public concern in Latin America. In a survey of more than 17,000 people in 18 of the region’s countries published this week by Transparency International, 85 percent said that government corruption was “a big problem” in their country, and 53 percent think it is getting worse.

Broadening the scope of the question to include legislatures, police, judiciaries and business as well as executives, more Latin Americans see blanket corruption than in the equivalent poll in Africa, The Economist reports.
