Sanding the Wheels of Growth: Cheating by Economics and Business Students and 'Real World' Corruption [Book Review]

Journal of Academic Ethics 11 (4):269-274 (2013)

The relation between academic integrity and real world corruption is more often presumed than proven. Based on a sample of 7,602 students from 21 countries, it was found that academic cheating in the past is a predictor of the countries’ current level of corruption. This reproducibility and persistence over time of dishonest behaviors highlights the danger of disregarding students cheating at university
