  • TITLE: Corruption: A New Analysis

    AUTHORS: Jan-Erik Lane

    KEYWORDS: Various Meanings of “Corruption”, Petty versus Big Corruption, Corruption Perceptions Index, Rule of Law, WB Governance Project

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Political Science, Vol.7 No.1, January 13, 2017

    ABSTRACT: The established theory of corruption needs to be re-examined, as it has a few flaws. It attributes a major role to corruption, pretending that it weighs extremely heavily upon social, economic and political outcomes. The lack of comparative data is troubling for vindicating such hypotheses, and it is barely compensated for by the resort to experts’ views around the globe, which in the form of the well-known Transparency Index (CPI) gives a probably inflated picture of the occurrence of corruption, especially in Third World countries. In a new approach, one would make crucial distinctions between various concepts of illegal behavior, reserving “corruption” for bribery as well as separating between petty corruption and big corruption.
