Description:

The paper discusses the yearly Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) of Transparency International that is a good benchmark of the corruption levels in countries around the world. The paper focuses on Asia's two least corrupt/high integrity countries, Singapore and Japan, and Asia's two most corrupt/low integrity countries, the Philippines and Myanmar. The paper explores the disparities in their CPI and explains that if there truly is political will, like in Japan and Singapore, corruption can be curbed. The paper then contrasts this to the Philippines and Myanmar where those in power aim just to propagate their power legacy and enrich their pockets at the expense of those they are supposed to govern.
