  11. Corruption

    Corruption

    Marco Arnone, Leonardo S. Borlini
    Corruption presents many legal and regulatory challenges, but these challenges cannot be met by the law in isolation. This book presents economic analysis of crime as an essential tool for shaping an effective legal apparatus.

This, they argue, should inform and help shape a balanced legal and regulatory approach to corruption. Learn More
