Show Summary Details


This chapter summarizes the theoretical, empirical, and methodological contributions that this book makes to the understanding of corruption and lobbying in developing countries, and discusses some of its limitations. It then discusses some of the consequences of these findings for the study of corruption, institutions, interest group politics, political parties, and the impact of globalization on domestic politics. It concludes by recognizing that this is the first systematic, comparative study of the relationship between lobbying and political corruption and that a fruitful area of future research would be to develop a more unified theory that incorporates the incentives generated by both electoral and legislative institutions.
