Abstract

The effects of corruption on country-level economic performance are part of a dynamic debate in the social sciences, concerning the measure and monitoring of corruption. In Latin America, the coexistence of high poverty levels with high economic growth rates continues to be a puzzling situation that may be partly explained by corruption and institutional quality indicators. This study discusses the links between poverty and corruption, by constructing an econometric model that compares corruption measurements with poverty and development indicators for Latin America, for the 1998-2008 decade.

Keywords: Corruption, Poverty, Development Strategies, Time Series analysis, Cross-country panel regressions, Latin America
