Damn corruption

> This is the quote from here: https://www.occrp.org/en/daily/14672-report-corruption-in-croatia-makes-people-leave

"Transparency International, an independent think tank, ranked Croatia as the 63rd most corrupt out of 180 countries in its 2020 Corruption Index, and a “bottom scorer” in the European Union. Croatia has hovered around the 60s ranking since 2015. In the recent months — and even days — the media has focused attention on both Croatia’s high emigration and high corruption rates, separately. A headline by Total Croatia News this February designated Croatia’s emigration rate as the second highest in the EU, right after Lithuania. Just this week, Transparency International’s Global Corruption Barometer deemed Croatians as the most concerned about government corruption out of every country in the EU. The results of Jurić’s new paper and book, Gastarbeiter Millennials, link these reported increases — and explain how emigration is both the result of past corruption and the fuel for further corruption."

 

> I came to my office this morning and quickly took a look at today's news. Nothing new in our country. Corruption, cheating, embezzlement and lying is daily practice of politicians and businessmen. This is something that pisses us off. We are among the few in our country who protects and care for our workers. While 99% businessmen are trying to save money on the account of their workers keeping them on minimal wages, laying on taxes and similar in order to get rich, we are the ones who give as much as we can to our workers for we care for them and their families. Our previous hotel manager was doing it and my Prince does it even better. That's why people love to work for us and they loves him. My Prince had business offers to work for some politicians and earn a lot of money if he join their political party. He turned them down because they were corrupted. He is the man of honor and we love him as such.

The ranking surprises me a bit. ? I think the last I've heard was from Bulgaria being hit by that cancer even worse.

 

Though you have to be a bit more precise, because your link goes to the "perception" index and you should always consider how that is measured.

See -> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transparency_International#Areas_of_work_and_products

Not that it makes it any better, but it's interesting to compare the results with the other reports to understand who regards corruption as such.

 

And I feel with you. It's very hard to stand up to any morale or ethics at all if you are surrounded by scum. :classic_sad:

> You've right. I wasn't accurate as I probably should, but my topic wasn't about accuracy of corruption in our country which everyone can find on Internet. It was just a data that I put on in order to support the news I have read about daily corruption in our country. And yes, Bulgaria is worse than us.

> To be honest, before I met my Prince my Ivy and I would take those jobs if we would have chance because we didn't care 'bout anyone. But seeing my Prince's honesty, integrity and high moral standards we simply changed and followed him. He is very charismatic person one can hardly resist. :)

Leading by good example is the most sustainable way to make a difference in my opinion. :classic_smile:

There are other ways, more efficient ways, more effective ways. But not in the long run.

Though that is the biggest disadvantage of that method, because it takes at least a whole generation (in power positions) to make the shift :classic_unsure:

>If examples are few and misled are plenty, positive changes comes in small percentage or not at all.
