ARTICLE: Transparency International states that more than 6 billion people live in countries with a serious corruption problem. Ways to curb corruption in rich countries may backfire in poor ones.The authors’ research challenges widely held assumptions about how best to reduce corruption

This study suggests that corruption is largely inevitable due to our evolved psychological dispositions; the challenge is apparently to find the conditions where corruption and its detrimental impacts can be minimised. The study indicates that corruption mitigation strategies help in some contexts, but elsewhere may cause the situation to deteriorate and can backfire.
