How Corruption Affects Retirees Overseas


“Kathleen, just a brief note to thank you for publishing Lee Harrison’s thorough and thoughtful article about corruption and its impact upon retirement overseas possibilities. This experience is highly valued.

“Lee’s category groupings of the Transparency International Index for countries in the Americas has also prompted my further suggestion about incorporating Portugal (ranked 28th) and Spain (36th) into either your Honest or Good categories.

“Thanks again for your clear thinking and complete response to this important area.”

–Lee H., United States

Overseas Property Alert Editor Lee Harrison responds:

Agreed. Generally, western European nations rank well when compared with much of the world. In this year’s Corruption Perception Index from Transparency International, the UK ranks high (honest) at position 10… with France, Portugal, and Spain also earning good marks.
