26 January 2010 Leave a comment

According to Transparency International, the United States has a “Bribe Payers Index” score of 8.1 out of a possible 10, which makes the United States tied for ninth with France and Singapore, out of twenty-two ranked countries in that category. Belgium and Canada are tied for first, with a score of 8.8.

According to Transparency International, the higher the score, the less likely firms from that country are to engage in bribery abroad.
