Corruption and government : causes, consequences, and reform by Susan Rose-Ackerman( Book )

60 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 1,282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book suggests how high levels of corruption limit investment and growth can lead to ineffective government. Developing countries and those making a transition from socialism are particularly at risk, but corruption is a worldwide phenomenon. Corruption creates economic inefficiencies and inequities, but reforms are possible to reduce the material benefits from payoffs. Corruption is not just an economic problem, however; it is also intertwined with politics. Reform may require changes in both constitutional structures and the underlying relationship of the market and the state. Effective reform cannot occur unless both the international community and domestic political leaders support change. No single 'blueprint' is possible, but the primary goal should be to reduce the gains from paying and receiving bribes, not simply to remove 'bad apples'. Winner of the the Charles H. Levine 2000 Book Award."

From elections to democracy : building accountable government in Hungary and Poland by Susan Rose-Ackerman( )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study documents the weaknesses of public oversight and participation in policymaking in Hungary and Poland, two of the most advanced countries in Central Europe. It discusses five alternative routes to accountability including European Union oversight, constitutional institutions such as presidents and courts, devolution to lower-level governments, the use of neocorporat bodies, and open-ended participation rights. It urges more emphasis on the fifth option, public participation. Case studies of the environmental movement in Hungary and of student groups in Poland illustrate these general points

Controlling environmental policy : the limits of public law in Germany and the United States by Susan Rose-Ackerman( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although many people feel that Germany provides a model for environmental policymaking, this book shows that it does not. German administrative law, which focuses on individuals' complaints against the state for violating their rights, does not deal adequately with the broad issues of democratic legitimacy and accountable procedures raised in American courts. Susan Rose-Ackerman compares regulatory law and policy in the United States and Germany and argues that the American system can provide lessons for those seeking to reform environmental policymaking in Germany and the newly democratic states of eastern Europe." "Democratic governments, says Rose-Ackerman, face the problem of balancing the desires and expertise of conflicting interest groups, such as those that concern themselves with environmental protection. Under German law, however, environmental associations with policy agendas have no enforceable legal right to participate in federal policymaking, and regulation writing is much less open and accountable than in the United States. The U.S. Supreme Court is moving in the direction of the German system - away from review of the rulemaking process and toward a focus on individual rights. Those who support this trend should look critically at the German solution."--Jacket

Building a trustworthy state in post-socialist transition by János Kornai( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book considers the problems and prospects for creating trustworthy and reliable public institutions since the transition from socialism in Central and Eastern Europe. The focus is on "second generation" issues of democratic consolidation in states where the basic structures of the market and the state have been established. The contributors raise important issues, such as corruption and participation, largely neglected during the first stage of the transition, and that are of growing importance as several countries in the region move toward entry into the European Union. Highlighting problems and prospects of democratization with comparative import to other newly democratizing areas, this volume draws on the experience of those who have lived through and studied the transition and contrasts their insights with those of generalist scholars who study government accountability and democracy."--Jacket
Creating social trust in post-socialist transition by János Kornai( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beneficial social and economic exchange relies on a certain level of trust. But trust is a delicate matter, not least in the former socialist countries where illegitimate behaviour by governments made distrust a habit. The chapters in this volume analyze the causes and the effects of the lack of social trust in post-socialist countries. The contributions originated in the Collegium Budapest project on Honesty and Trust: Theory and Experience in the Light of the Post-Socialist Transition. A second volume entitled, Building a Trustworthy State in Post-Socialist Transition , is being published simultaneously
Due process of lawmaking : the United States, South Africa, Germany, and the European Union by Susan Rose-Ackerman( Book )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With nuanced perspective and detailed case studies, Due Process of Lawmaking explores the law of lawmaking in the United States, South Africa, Germany, and the European Union. This comparative work deals broadly with public policymaking in the legislative and executive branches. It frames the inquiry through three principles of legitimacy: democracy, rights, and competence. Drawing on the insights of positive political economy, the authors explicate the ways in which courts uphold these principles in the different systems. Judicial review in the American presidential system suggests lessons for the parliamentary systems in Germany and South Africa, while the experience of parliamentary government yields potential insights into the reform of the American law of lawmaking. Taken together, the national experiences shed light on the special case of the EU. In dialogue with each other, the case studies demonstrate the interplay between constitutional principles and political imperatives under a range of different conditions
Greed, corruption, and the modern state : essays in political economy( Book )

13 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The expert authors in this timely volume offer diverse perspectives on how corruption distorts state and market relations, while drawing from insights in political science, economics, and law. This book represents a new wave of research in political economy, relying on methodological rigor to address topics ranging from corruption in taxation and trade to crony capitalism and false anti-corruption reforms. Key chapters provide a thorough review of the literature on links between political connections and democratic institutions. Special attention is paid to the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention, the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, China's anti-corruption drive, and language used to discuss tax evasion. Case studies from various regions - such as China, Paraguay, South Africa, and New York City - anchor the analysis with real-world situations. Greed, Corruption, and the Modern State is a critical resource for students, researchers, and practitioners interested in development, economics, governance, and corruption
International handbook on the economics of corruption by Susan Rose-Ackerman( Book )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A companion volume to the International Handbook on the Economics of Corruption published in 2006, the specially commissioned papers in Volume Two present some of the best policy-oriented research in the field. They stress the institutional roots of corruption and include new research on topics ranging from corruption in regulation and procurement to vote buying and private firm payoffs. Understanding the consequences of corrupt transactions requires one to know what is being bought with a bribe and how the behavior of public and private actors has been affected. The contributors therefore emphasize how the economic analysis of corruption must take account of the broader context within which bribery and self-dealing operate. Several chapters offer new approaches to empirical research on corruption that range from individual-level data to the macro-economy. Chapters with an explicit policy focus deal with the efficacy of anti-corruption agencies, multi-stakeholder initiatives, red flag warning systems and international conventions. -- Publisher description

Anti-corruption policy : can international actors play a constructive role?( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"International organizations routinely incorporate anti-corruption efforts into their good governance programs. An OECD treaty outlaws the bribery of foreign public officials, and the United Nations has promulgated a broad-based anticorruption treaty. The arbitral system for international dispute resolution increasingly confronts allegations of corruption. Scholars are beginning to document the costs of corruption for the citizens of developing countries and for the integrity of international business dealings". -- BACKCOVER

High-level rent seeking and corruption in African regimes : theory and cases by Jacqueline G Coolidge( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

June 1997 For international aid and lending institutions: Encourage liberalization, deregulation, and civil service reform where rulers are autocratic but credibly committed to growth and efficiency. Be cautious about financing half-hearted reform in systems ruled by kleptocrats. In particular, do not expect tax, customs, and procurement reform to be implemented as designed in systems where top rulers and their allies routinely pocket state resources. One explanation for Africa's failure to develop is the weakness of its public institutions. Coolidge and Rose-Ackerman consider one aspect of that weakness: rent-seeking and corruption at the top of government. Under the conditions of their model, an autocrat who seeks to maximize personal financial return favors an inefficiently large public sector and distorts other public sector priorities more than does an autocrat who seeks to maximize national income. However, if civil servants and public officials are also venal, the ruler will not favor so large a government. To show how African regimes operate, Coolidge and Rose-Ackerman present four cases illustrating issues raised by their theoretical model. Among their observations about the relationship between the motivations of top officials and policies to control corruption and other types of rent-seeking are these: * A kleptocrat whose decision variable is the level of government intervention in the economy will select an excessive level of intervention, in which national income is less than optimal. * Like all monopolists, the kleptocrat seeks productive efficiency except where inefficiency creates extra rents. * Facing a kleptocrat, citizens prefer a smaller than optimal-sized government but get one that is too big. * A kleptocrat may need to permit lower-level officials to share in corrupt gains thus introducing additional costs. He or she will then favor a smaller government than if subordinates could be perfectly controlled. * Dropping the assumption of a single dimension of government intervention, the kleptocrat will favor a different mixture of tax, spending, and regulatory programs than will a benevolent autocrat. * Dropping the assumption that rulers are writing on a clean slate, decisions to privatize or nationalize firms can differ across autocratic regimes. In particular, although kleptocrats will often be reluctant to privatize, they may in some cases support privatizations that a benevolent ruler would oppose. * Investment in countries with kleptocratic rules may have an overly short-run orientation. * When rent-seeking at top levels is pervasive, both natural resources and foreign aid under state control may hamper, not encourage, growth. This paper - a product of the Private Sector Development Department, the Visiting Research Fellows Program, and the Foreign Investment Advisory Service - is part of a larger effort in the Bank to promote institutional reforms necessary for combating corruption and promoting investment and private sector led growth
