Schizophrenia of Corrupt Behavior : Traditional norms versus Weberian forms

Hoadley, Mason LU and Hatti, Neelambar LU (2018) In Lund Papers in Economic History. Development Economics
Abstract
Elements of traditional public behavior tend to fall precariously close to what in Western/Weberian terms are percieved as corrupt practices. More specifically, the paper focuses on a number of themes borrowed from our earlier works on corruption in India and Indonesia. To counter possible interpretations that developing countries are per se corrupt, we draw upon the anthropological ob- servations concerning traditional behavior in Indian villages and Robert Neild’s historical sum- maries of developing European countries in order to fulfil demands inherent of social science. The essay closes by postulating issues for further research.
