Title: Opening to the World
Author(s): Garcia-Murillo, Martha
Subject(s): Corruption Internet
Abstract: It has been well documented that corruption negatively affects economic development. The purpose of this paper is to quantify the effect that Internet access in a country has on the level of corruption by studying a cross section of a larger sample of approximately 150 countries. The paper extends the model in Vinod (1999; 2003) and includes political, economic, and technological factors that can affect the level of corruption. We also present short country case studies to illustrate how some are using the Internet in their efforts to curtail corruption.
