Poltical corruption has traditionally been presented as phenomenon characteristic of developing countries, authoritarian regime, or societies in which the value system favoured tacit patrimony and clientism. Recently, however, the thesis of an inverse correlation between corruption and economic and political development has been frequently and convincingly challenged. Countries with a long democratic tradition, such as the USA, France, Belgium and Italy, have all experienced a combination of headline-grabbing scandals and smaller-scale cases of misappropriation. Corruption increasingly appears a problem common to most, if not all democracies. In this text, primary research on the more conspicuous Italian case, combined with a cross-national comparison based on a secondary analysis of corruption in democratic systems, is used to develop a model to analyze corruption as a network of illegal exchanges. The authors explore in great detail the structure of that network, by examining both the characteristics of the actors who directly engage in the corruption and the resources they exchange.

  • The missing incentive : corruption, anticorruption, and reelection / with George Ganev.
Why are anti -corruption campaigns running out of steam, and why are post-communist societies obsessed with corruption?This book is not a study of anti-corruption policies. Instead, it looks at the politics of anti-corruption. Policies are what institutions do. But in analyzing politics, this book seeks to discover why institutions do what they do.

"Grand" corruption, generally used to define corruption amongst the top political elite, has drawn increasing attention from academics and policy makers during recent years. Our understanding of the causes and mechanisms of this type of corruption, however, falls short of its importance and consequences. This volume provides theoretical analysis of economic and political conditions that allow "grand" corruption to survive as well as case studies and empirical analysis that supports the theoretical models used.

This book suggests how high levels of corruption limit investment and growth can lead to ineffective government. Developing countries and those making a transition from socialism are particularly at risk, but corruption is a worldwide phenomenon. Corruption creates economic inefficiencies and inequities, but reforms are possible to reduce the material benefits from payoffs. Corruption is not just an economic problem, however; it is also intertwined with politics. Reform may require changes in both constitutional structures and the underlying relationship of the market and the state. Effective reform cannot occur unless both the international community and domestic political leaders support change. No single 'blueprint' is possible, but the primary goal should be to reduce the gains from paying and receiving bribes, not simply to remove 'bad apples'.
