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 …xed exchange rate to a low in‡ation country, like a currency board, can reduce corruption and improve the …scal system. A monetary union, however, has ambiguous e¤ects. I …nd that that there is convergence between countries with regard to the level of corruption.
