Fixing the UK housing market requires a holistic approach but promises more affordable homes, more sustainable and equitable growth and lower risks to financial stability.

The Many Faces of Corruption

09 October 2018              Dr Ajit Mishra, University of Bath

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!
