The article explains some basic assumptions of economic theory from a political science perspective. It proposes that corruption is a problem related both to market and State failures, and collective action problems in general. In a non economic language, it adresses the relationship between market, State and social decision-making, in connection with corruption debates that put the issue at the center of those concerns. Finally, there is a critical reading of economic theories on corruption with a call, between the lines, to transdisciplinarity in its study.
