How corruption affects the growth of firms
On Wednesday Margarita Tsoutsoura, University of Chicago, presented a study – “Firm Growth and Labor Reallocation after Exposure of Corrupt Practices”– during an academic seminar at IFN. Coming from Greece, she explained, "I certainly can see the value in good government and fighting corruption". Adding that she wants to better understand how corruption affects the economy in general and firms in particular. Margarita Tsoutsoura's research also include studies of tax evasion and corporate governance.
