title = "The audit juggernaut: Comment on Audit Culture articles",
abstract = "Anthropologists studying audit culture focus on the success of rankings, ratings and indicators in constituting or reproducing discourses, a kind of audit juggernaut of power. But in fact, alot of these rankings have no impact at all. The short commentary, part of a group of papers on audit culture, rankings and indicators, compares the Transparency International Corruption Perception Index with the lesser known World Bank Governance Matters index. Anthropologists need to study why some audit discourses have no impact at all.",
