Abstract

We analyze the role that corporation plays and could play in anticorruption programs, with the World Bank Governance and Anticorruption (2006-07) report as a base. Using the BPI and CPI and Doing-Business databases, its triple strategy investment climate, ethical practice and sanctions is analyzed. Results evidence the low (high) signification of climate (ethics). We criticize the ethical conceptualization of the WB and conclude by describing corruption as an alignment problem for firms.
