The Economic Issues series aims to make available to a broad readership of nonspecialists some of the economic research being produced in the International Monetary Fund on topical issues. The raw material of the series is mainly IMF Working Papers, technical papers produced by IMF staff members and visiting scholars, as well as policy-related research papers. This material is edited and partly redrafted for a general readership.
This Economic Issues pamphlet draws on material originally contained in IMF Working Paper 97/139, “Corruption, Public Investment, and Growth,” by Vito Tanzi and Hamid Davoodi. David Driscoll prepared the current version. Readers interested in the original Working Paper may obtain a copy from IMF Publication Services ($7.00) or view the full text on the IMF’s Internet site at http://www.imf.org.
