From Panama papers to Brazilian bribes: why corruption is so bad

Corruption is another tax

In economic terms, bribery is simply another government tax.

Imagine a store owner who pays a set tax each year. Now imagine each year the store owner also needs to bribe local officials for an operating permit. The tax plus the bribe affects the store’s bottom line the same as simply being taxed once by the government at a higher amount.

In general, taxes discourage business. When costs go up without a change in revenue, profits fall. If profits fall so low as to disappear, the reason for being in business goes away.

In simple terms corruption and bribery reduce the economic incentive to produce. This lowers a country’s output and drags down the entire nation’s standard of living. Bribes result in a smaller economic pie because businesses don’t expand resulting in fewer jobs, smaller legitimate tax revenue and lower output for everyone.

Corruption and bribery, however, have a more damaging impact than most regular government taxes. First, having to pay bribes reduces people’s trust in government. Second, bribes are more damaging than a tax because the amount paid in bribes is often both unknown and highly variable.

The global cost of corruption is estimated at more than US$2.26 trillion a year, or 5 percent of global GDP, according to the World Economic Forum. More than $1 trillion of that is paid in bribes. Another study found that every percentage point increase in corruption – according to an index that measures it – reduces GDP growth by 0.13 percent and GDP per capita by $425 a year. Corruption has also been linked to higher levels of poverty and inequality.

But beyond the direct costs, even the threat of a bribe disrupts economic activity and leaves everyone worse off. While a tax is usually known in advance, allowing businesses and individuals to plan, it is exceedingly difficult to plan and adjust for bribes since the amount is not fixed but instead is “negotiated.”

http://democracynow.org – While thousands of Americans fought against fascism in the Spanish Civil War, some chose to back Franco’s fascist regime. The most notable was the CEO of the American oil giant Texaco. He violated U.S. law by selling Franco’s regime discounted oil on credit. Also in violation of U.S. law, the oil was transported to Spain on U.S. ships. For more on this remarkable story, we’re joined by Adam Hochschild, the author of the sweeping new history book, “Spain in Our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939.”
