Are new states more corrupt? Expert opinions vs. firms’ experiences
Adhikari, Tamanna; Breen, Michael; Gillanders, Robert
We find that new states are perceived to be more corrupt even though businesses do not report more bribery in newer states. This is suggestive of an unearned, and likely high, reputational cost to being a new state. These findings hold over a number of specifications that include additional economic, historical, and geographic controls.
