Treisman: The causes of corruption

Disclaimer. Don't rely on these old notes in lieu of reading the literature, but they can jog your memory. As a grad student long ago, my peers and I collaborated to write and exchange summaries of political science research. I posted them to a wiki-style website. "Wikisum" is now dead but archived here. I cannot vouch for these notes' accuracy, nor can I say who wrote them.

Treisman. 2000. The causes of corruption: A cross-national study. Journal of Public Economics 76 (3):399-457.

Definition of Corruption: "misuse of public office for private gain"
