PUBLIC GOODS, CORRUPTION AND GROWTH???

No 15/06, Monash Economics Working Papers from Monash University, Department of Economics
In this paper, we analyse implications of corruption on growth. We extend existing growth models by incorporating ubiquitous corruption as a by-product of the public sector. Corruption affects both taxation and public good provision, and therefore causes income redistribution and inefficiencies in the public sector. These effects of corruption lead to lower growth through distortions of investment incentives and resources allocation.
