Abstract:

Political corruption continues to challenge economic development, growth of democracy, and peaceful international relations. Linkages among the latter have long occupied scholars, while the subject of political avarice has been included only quite recently in quantitative studies. Building upon research that points to strong links between corruption and economic interdependence, this study examines relationships among trading partners, in particular among those countries that have one or only a few major trading partners. Does the corruption level of its major trading partner(s) impact a country's corruption level? To some degree, it appears that countries with a single major trading partner are indeed influenced by their partner's level of corruption. The greater the propensity of its partner to offer and accept bribes, the more likely a country will reciprocate. On the flip side, the more a partner abides by clean dealings, the more likely a country too will forswear illicit transactions. This relationship, however, is borne out only among countries with single major partners claiming between 10 and 20 percent of exports and not for those single major partners with more than 20 percent share of exports.

Cox Brescia University michaelenec@brescia.edu Abstract Political corruption continues to challenge economic development growth of democracy and peaceful international relations. Linkages among the latter have long occupied scholars while the subject of political avarice has been included only quite recently in quantitative studies. Building upon research that points to strong links between corruption and economic interdependence this study examines the relationships among
economic development they might keep in mind that development is closely intertwined with political corruption and greatly harmed by it. While exploratory analyses in this paper suggest that major exporting partners can exert influence over levels of corruption in a country the link is not automatic. The statistical tests herein must be interpreted cautiously and preliminary. Before determining with any confidence whether the corruption level of a state reflect that of its major trading partner we must next engage
