Research Summary


by Paul M. Healy


World Bank estimates indicate that as much as $1 trillion is paid in bribes throughout the world in a given year. Corruption has been shown to slow economic development. My research focuses on how corruption affects multinational companies. It discusses differences in companies’ commitments to fighting corruption and their implications for performance, as well as providing greater understanding for how companies become involved in corruption and the consequences of getting caught.
