Title: Corruption and poverty
Author: Santos, Rui Teixeira
Abstract: The quantitative methods have been questioned, mostly because at certain points they served as tools to identify the poorest countries as being the most corrupt and the most developed one, such as Germany, as being the least corrupt. In the end, the criticism to the econometric models of the German school and, specially, the example of International Transparency turned out to become an ideological fight between two suspicious worlds. This paper wil enable to conclude that, in reality, corruption creates a death weight on the Economy, ie, it decreases the commerce acts and thus ends up by contributing to the countries’ impoverishment. I suppor the idea that corruption really contributes to the reduction of the economies’ potential and it is therefore an impoverishment factor of the States.
