Corruption, Social trust, Entrepreneurship, Civic society
Up to now, the major part of corruption research in the field of economics has been done from the viewpoint of the bribetaker (state official). However, to analyse the roots of this phenomenon, one also needs to scrutinize it from the viewpoint of the bribe-payer at the micro level. Only an investigation of both sides involved in corrupt transactions as well as their motives and rules of behaviour will contribute to a better understanding of this phenomenon and thus enable us to combat it efficiently. Considering this, I attempt in this paper to give insights into the determinants governing the perception of corruption of entrepreneurs as potential bribe-payers. (fragment of text)
