  • Provides insight into motives for and persistence of corruption
  • Addresses key questions about corruption and uses examples to illustrate its effects
  • Offers ways to prevent and eliminate corruption

Corruption regularly makes front page headlines: public officials embezzling government monies, selling public offices, and trading bribes for favors to private companies generate public indignation and calls for reform. In Corruption: What Everyone Needs to Know(R), renowned scholars Ray Fisman and Miriam A. Golden provide a deeper understanding of why corruption is so damaging politically, socially, and economically. Among the key questions examined are: is corruption the result of perverse economic incentives? Does it stem from differences in culture and tolerance for illicit acts of government officials? Why don't voters throw corrupt politicians out of office? Vivid examples from a wide range of countries and situations shed light on the causes of corruption, and how it can be combated.

"The importance of understanding corruption has never been so important as right now. This is the new go-to book on the topic." - Tyler Cowen, Professor of economics, GMU
    

"To tackle corruption we need to recognize that it is a symptom of a society in which incentives are distorted, control mechanisms are absent and norms are mis-calibrated. Anyone planning to delve into these issues would be well served by first studying what Fisman and Golden have to say." - Daron Acemoglu, co-author of Why Nations Fail and professor of economics, MIT
