Коррупция и коэффициент Джини

philg: Why is Russia’s government “corrupt” when it spends more than necessary to build some Olympics venues but the U.S. government is not corrupt when it spends more than market rates to buy military hardware from contractors, pay federal employees, and do construction?
Do we consider ourselves superior to the Russians because the profits from higher-than-market-rate government spending are more broadly distributed here?
