New "shaming" strategies could help fight the war on corruption. Anticorruption efforts are becoming less quixotic as organizations such as Transparency International uncover the unsavory practices of businesses and government agencies. Among other "report cards," the organization has developed a "Big Mac Index" to show suspicious cost differences in consumer goods and commodities, a "Corruption Perception Index" based on surveys of various experts, and a "Bribe Payers Index" to rank countries on their propensity to bribe public officials.
