Corruption has long been a source of (i) argument as to its meaning and ethical implications and (ii) interest as to its effects on the multinational firm. Coordination of efforts to provide a comprehensive understanding of corruption has been found lacking (see generally, Robertson & Watson, 2004). Unfortunately, problems associated with corruption continue. This paper addresses the nature of corruption, with particular focus on the type of institutional rule circumvented by corrupt activity. Characteristics of the subject “rule” may influence the likelihood of corruption and may in future work
aid in identifying improved mitigation tactics.
