11 December 2018

Andreas Wasmuht, BRLSI Business & Economics Convenor

Much of modern economic theory and multi-national business practices in a globalised world are based on the mistaken view that organisations are well-oiled machine, the mission of which is to optimise profit. This lecture explores the organisation as an organism within a dynamic environment which reflects actual, rather than theorised behaviour.

The Many Faces of Corruption

09 October 2018              Dr Ajit Mishra, University of Bath

Corruption, commonly defined as abuse of public office for private gain, takes many forms and occurs in many different spheres of economic and social life. While it is common to focus on big scams and corruption surrounding mega deals, what drives corruption and sustains it in many countries is ‘petty corruption’ facing ordinary citizens. While it is well known that ‘power corrupts’, we show using results from behavioural experiments that corruption also corrupts!
