Ett intressant nytt papper i Public Choice visar att emigration från ett korrupt land kan göra ursprungslandet mindre korrupt:
Using data from the Gallup Balkan Monitor survey and instrumental variable analysis, we find that having relatives abroad reduces the likelihood of bribing public officials, renders bribe-taking behavior by public officials less acceptable, and reduces the likelihood of being asked for bribes by public officials. [...] Overall, our findings support the conjecture that migration contributes to the transfer of norms and practices from destination to source countries
