Do you think the gap in corruption between the first world former colonies of the UK (US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia) and the developing nation former colonies (such as Nigeria) might be warping the studies on corruption in former British colonies? How corrupt are the latter in comparison when you separate them from the former?
I wonder that Hypothesis #10 has no clear impact for more corruption. Maybe a comparison between decades makes less sense then a comparison between countries. I think a country like Nigeria is a good example for the so-called resource curse. Also see some more arguments here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resource_curse#Corruption
