Correlation Between Corruption and Ease of Doing Business

Source: The Economist
I am posting this not because of the data highlighted by the original authors on Asian countries, but rather on the strong correlation shown between the perception of corruption and the ease of doing business. Correlation is not causality, and I assume that there is some deeper cultural cause of both corruption and difficulty of doing business in a country,

It would be interesting to do a Gapminder on this and see how the position of countries changes on these two dimensions in recent history, and relate that change to economic development.
