The Book Corruption and Government – Causes, Consequences, and Reform looks at the explosion of investigation that accompanied the fall of the Berlin Wall, the founding of Transparency International, and the World Bank’s decision to make anti-corruption policy a priority on its Agenda. The book deals with routine payments and corruption in public procurement and privatization. It pays special attention to political corruption and accountability tools. The book describes the conditions necessary for reforming the system and discusses international initiatives – including explicit anti-corruption policies and efforts to curb money laundering.
