Description

Corruption is a reality of life in all countries and the ASEAN Community is no exception. This paper proposes that the wealth of a country can be a determinant of corruption. Accordingly, the authors sought to ascertain if there is a relationship between gross national product (GNP) per capita and the corruption perception index (CPI) of ASEAN countries. Through statistical analysis, thisstudy demonstrates that there is a significant linear relationship between wealth generation and a country's level of corruption. Wealth, or lack of it, emerges as a significant determinant variable in understanding the corruption pattern. The implications of thesefindings are discussed and suggestions for future research are provided by the authors.
