Determinants of Corruption in Developing Countries: The Limits of Conventional Economic Analysis

In: International Handbook on the Economics of Corruption


  • Mushtaq H. Khan


Economic research on corruption aims both to isolate the economic effects of quid pro quo deals between agents and third parties, and to suggest how legal and institutional reforms might curb harms and enhance benefits. In this comprehensive Handbook, top scholars in the field provide specially commissioned essays, both theoretical and empirical, exploring both types of research.
