Remarks from the Award Committee
The authors apply the methodology of experimental economics, as opposed to the conventional economics analytical framework and empiricism, to simulate some corruption scenarios. Although the average age of the subjects (college students) is eighteen, far younger than any government officials, the social identify of being a government official causes corruption due to self recognizing Chinese bureaucracy culture. When the subject is a government official, he is more corrupted than he is as a civilian and the tolerance of corruption is higher as a government official. The implication of this study on the current anticorruption campaign in China is every significant. Besides increasing judiciary independence, policy supervising and bureaucracy transparency, demolish Chinese bureaucracy culture is essential in the current anticorruption campaign.
