I was born and I live in the U.S.  I have visited China many times.  I agree that corruption exists in both countries.  I define corruption as an individual who uses the influence given to him or her by his or her job for personal gain.

I read sometimes in newspapers or see in the news on TV, instances where U.S. politicians have used their government positions for personal gain.  I've seen instances of low-level officials, such as police officers and building inspectors (for example) soliciting or accepting bribes.

My experience is that I have never personally had to deal with corruption at home.  In my visits to China (And Vietnam) I have had to pay bribes to policemen and other low level municipal employees just to get them to do their job.

It's hard to say if one place is worse than the other.  I think however, that corruption by officials is much harder to hide here in the U.S.  Rules and regulations for the conduct of officials is open information; people have the right to receive public records from the government in order to investigate corruption; and lastly, the judicial system is open and transparent and ruled by law, which makes it very difficult to ignore corruption once it is exposed.  I think China needs more to apply rule of law and transparency in government operations so that the citizens can simply watch their officials more closely.

Cheers
