The Corruption - An Economic and Social Analysis
The current edition in English language turns into account and completes the studies published in the previous edition. Carrying on the research and publication activities on the topic of corruption is based on its novelty and on the special interest for the Romanian language edition. At the same time, we hope that the current volume will provide greater opportunities for foreign access and thus the admittance in the European and international flows of information in this field. The core ideas of the book focus on social perception, modelled through statistic analyses, on the specificity of corruption in the public administration or the public health system in close correlation to the processes of decentralization and performance of health services. The analysis of the corruption topic is in interference with the effects of the European integration processes, globalization, being correlated to adjacent developments concerning the public integrity, national or regional economic freedom and development. This book represents the result of the scientific collaboration between teams of teaching staff and students from the National School of Political Studies and Public Administration and Academy of Economic Studies, Bucharest. The book is structured on nine chapters, organised according to a didactic logic, in view to provide the reader a profound overview of the mechanisms and methodology of research as well as the conclusions and the economic and social impact of corruption. Data processing in view to estimate the correlations and parameters of regression has been achieved through SPSS and Eviews statistic programs. The authors will be grateful to all those who will formulate remarks, comments or suggestions for improving the content of the book.
