Corruption, inequality and the shadow economy: Evidence from Asia
While cross-country interest on this issue is not uncommon, region-specific or country-specific evidence is relatively scant. This study offers a detailed panel data analysis for 19 countries in Asia between 1980-2008 to observe the possible linkage between corruption and inequality, both being reportedly high under acceptable indices.
