Abstract

This chapter’s argument is that accepting opportunities for corruption, and the culturally-specific nature of the relationships which evolve as a consequence of realising such opportunity, can be a natural consequence of socio-economic development (as modernisation), then an interpretation of corruption in terms of its commercial viability rather than public morality is more helpful when generating culturally-sensitive control strategies, and interpreting the social and economic consequences of corruption.
