On Political Corruption

(p.115) 5 On Political Corruption

Laurence Whitehead (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Is mainly concerned with political corruption in newly established democracies, and in particular with the enhanced potential for monetary corruption when untried representative institutions are established in a context of acute economic inequalities. In theory, there are three main defences against such political corruption—legal, electoral, and market‐based—but the evidence suggests that such defences are easily breached.
