Are new states more corrupt? Expert opinions vs. firms’ experiences

Adhikari, Tamanna, Breen, Michael orcid logoORCID: 0000-0002-5857-9938 and Gillanders, Robert orcid logoORCID: 0000-0001-9462-0005 (2018) Are new states more corrupt? Expert opinions vs. firms’ experiences. Applied Economics Letters, 26 (2). pp. 131-134. ISSN 1350-4851

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.
