The Economics of Corruption

The Economics of Corruption | Tax and Economic Justice | Scoop.it

These academics are part of one the latest trends in economics: forensic economics. ..

 

Forensic economics seeks to use economic tools to detect and describe hidden, sometimes illicit behavior. In 2011, Eric Zitzewitz of Dartmouth College published a meta-analysis of studies that employ forensic economics, and he discusses some reasons why economists might be called in as third-party consultants for these problems.

In some cases, like bond funds altering their portfolios near disclosure dates to make the funds seem safer to investors than they actually are, the problem is inherently economic. In other cases, we'd expect officials to be monitoring their corrupt workers, but sometimes, the officials are complicit in the corruption scheme. A notable example of this is Steve Levitt's (of Freakonomics fame) study on prostitution in Chicago; the Chicago police is "more likely to have sex with" prostitutes than arrest them.
