Abstract

Recent work in the area of tax evasion and fiscal corruption in LDCs has highlighted incentive theory and has produced some useful innovations in measurement. An interesting contrarian strain of research suggests that corruption and smuggling are sometimes use as tools of government, instead of being constraints on it. A case-by-case approach to these problems seems to be warranted.
