Drawing from theories in economics, sociology, and psychology, Peculiar Dynamics of Corruption examines how gender, religion, culture, and history affect corruption. It asks and answers many questions such as, does employing more women than men reduce corruption in public sector organizations? How does a country's religious landscape a hundred years ago affect corruption today? Is corruption higher in recessions or times of economic growth? The answers to these questions are surprising: group dynamics may matter more than gender, a history of Protestantism has lasting effects on a country, and corruption is cyclical, but not in a way, most would assume. Corruption is not motivated purely by financial gain and by offering simple explanations of these unexpected causes. This book broadens our understanding of this global issue.
