The Economics of Corruption in Less Developed Countries: A Review of Issues

Author

  • Pranab Bardhan.

Abstract

In this paper we start with a discussion of some of the different denotations of the problem of corruption. We then consider the ways in which the damaging consequences of corruption operate in the economy, while not ignoring its possible redeeming features in some cases. We pursue the question of why corruption is perceptibly so different in different societies and also so persistent. Finally, we examine the feasible policy issues that arise.
