Is corruption really bad for inequality? Evidence from Latin America In this paper the authors present new evidence regarding the relationship between corruption and income inequality. They use panel data to show that in Latin America lower levels of corruption are correlated with higher income inequality. The authors’ contribution is two-fold. Firstly, they provide an empirical investigation of the link between corruption, a mechanism that is most commonly used to explain the region’s problems, and inequality in Latin America. Secondly, their findings challenge empirical work in other regions of the world, which find corruption and inequality to be positively related, while building on recent theoretical findings that the relationship between corruption and inequality is non-monotonic. They use four-year panel data over the period of 1982-2002 for 19 Latin American countries. Read More...

The Rule of Law Index, 2011 The Rule of Law Index is a quantitative assessment tool designed to offer a comprehensive picture of the extent to which countries adhere to the rule of law. The Index presents a comprehensive set of indicators on the rule of law from the perspective of the ordinary person. It examines practical situations in which a rule of law deficit may affect the daily lives of ordinary people. For example, it evaluates whether citizens can access public services without the need to bribe a government officer.
