"Andrew Wedeman seeks to explain why the Chinese economy performed so well despite widespread corruption at almost kleptocratic levels. Drawing on more than three decades of data from China -- as well as examples of the interplay between corruption and growth in South Korea, Taiwan, Equatorial Guinea, and other nations in Africa and the Caribbean -- Wedeman cautions that rapid growth requires not only ongoing and improved anticorruption efforts but also consolidated and strengthened property rights"--P.  of cover.
A double paradox -- Developmental corruption -- Degenerative corruption -- Sequencing and corruption -- Systemic transition and corruption -- Anticorruption and corruption -- Controlling corruption and sustaining rapid growth.
