dc.description.abstractThis paper studies one method by which the emigration of skilled workers contributes to the emergence of corruption. It first builds on a political agency model and connects that to a simple model of media investigation. In doing so, it formalizes a conception of public scrutiny and helps explain the remarkable convergence in rankings of corruption and output. The paper then takes a step towards estimating the aggregate effects of emigration on corruption with the Ferraz and Finan Brazilian audit data. The estimation and theoretical contribution are incomplete because I do not test the media investigation mechanism. Nonetheless, the estimated effect points in the expected direction.
