Employee Crime and Monitoring in Malawi

a PSC Small Fund Research Project

Investigator:   Susan Godlonton

This project examines corrupt behavior by individual employees working on short-term contracts in a developing country, and uses exogenous variation in the monitoring rate to produce precise, well-identified measures of individual responses to employer strategies about monitoring. Specifically, I measure how employees change the extent to which they steal from the firm in response to varying degrees of monitoring in the work force.

Funding Period: 09/01/2009 to 12/31/2010

Country of Focus: Malawi
