Abstract

Corruption exists in both developed and developing countries of various political and economic systems, and its occurrence is highly associated with the economic growth and development stages of the country (Bardhan in J Econ Lit 35(3):1320–1346, 1997; Ehrlich and Lui in J Polit Econ 107(S6):S270–S293, 1999).
