Globalisation and corruption - Learning how to become less corrupt
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
When countries do business with each other, be it through trade or investments, they expose themselves to foreign culture, behaviour and values (cultural traits). Previous research has shown that exposure to foreign cultures entails possible transmission of cultural traits. This paper demonstrates that when countries interact, domestic corruption may be influenced by the level of corruption in a foreign country. The empirical assessment of a panel of countries produces evidence that there indeed exists transmission of corruption between countries that interact. However, this transmission seems to be one directional going from rich to poor countries.
