At a squared correlation coefficient of only 56 percent, there must be better predictors of human development. And of course that is the question: which predicts which? Is it prevalent corruption that keeps human development down or low human development that keeps corruption high.

I was seeking a person who’d be in a position to clearly navigate me on this matter and was fortunate enough to find you.
Thank you a lot for the detailed reason, you drew attention to a
very common matter! Although I share your view for the
most part, I think that a few things are worth having a
more comprehensive look to comprehend what’s happening.
