The International Budget Partnership released the Open Budget Survey 2010, the only independent, comparative, regular measure of budget transparency and accountability around the world. 

Produced every two years by independent experts not beholden to national governments, the report reveals that 74 of the 94 countries assessed fail to meet basic standards of transparency and accountability with national budgets.

 This opens the door to abuse and inappropriate and inefficient use of public money. 

The good news is that all governments - no matter their income levels or political systems or dependence on aid - can improve transparency and accountability quickly and with very little additional cost or effort by publishing online all of the budget information they already produce and by inviting public participation in the budget process.
