Title:Taxation, corruption and the exchange rate regime PDF Logo
Authors:Hefeker, Carsten
Issue Date:2008
Series/Report no.:HWWI Research Paper 2-12
Abstract:The paper analyzes the relation between institutional quality, such as corruption, in a country and its monetary regime. It is shown that a credibly fixed exchange rate to a low inflation country, like a currency board, can reduce corruption and improve the fiscal system. A monetary union, however, has ambiguous effects. I find that there is convergence between countries with regard to the level of corruption.
