comment How did the United States avoid (or recover from) post revolution corruption?
This seems overly simplistic. At the time of the U.S. revolution it seems like the U.S. was very rich in natural resources and had a reasonably well developed political infrastructure that could have fallen victim to corruption. Do you have examples of other states that support these factors as being relevant?

comment How did the United States avoid (or recover from) post revolution corruption?
@HermannIngjaldsson I guess that is what I am trying to get at with my question. Is there a set of conditions present in more modern recently independent states that makes them more vulnerable to institutional corruption that was not present in the early U.S. In other words was the U.S. unique or just lucky?

I have no idea what the appropriate tags for this question would be. Please feel free to edit the tags for a better fit.
