GROWTH, GOVERNANCE AND GLOBALIZATION: WHY THE 3 G'S ARE LINKED

In October 2009 we presented this paper (co-authored with Margaret Rose of the Caribbean Procurement Institute and vice chairman of the Trinidad and Tobago charter of Transparency International) at a Masterclass on Governance and Anti-Corruption organized by the University of Passau in Germany. Prof Lambsdorff of the Uni of Passau was one of the architects of Transparency's famous Corruption Perception Index (CPI).

In our paper we analyzed linkages between corruption indicators and various economic indicators capturing 'growth' and 'globalization' at both the 'return' and 'risk' level.

Our conclusion: in an environment of globalization governance is basically a risk variable, and one that is very important for emerging and frontier countries.
