Corruption in International Business
Model Development and Testing
Recent growth in international bade has raised concerns about differing business practices which can impede commerce and economic development. The purpose of this study was to develop and test a model that integrates various socio-economic factors, including corruption, economics, culture and public bureaucracy. The analysis revealed several relationships among these variables. The implications of the results for predicting and enhancing the effectiveness of international anti-corruption agreements are discussed.
