How people of different countries consider an infringement of the law: the comparative econometric analysis
In this research we try to estimate how people of different countries consider an infringement of the law (tax evasion and bribery) using the data for 57 countries of the 5th wave of the World Value Survey (WVS) for the period from 2005 to 2008. We are interested in the relationship between individual features of responders from different countries and their attitude to breaking the law. We also take into account the level of individual’s confidence in basic political institutions. For that purpose cluster analysis, ordered probit models, and bivariate probit model were used. With a help of the obtained results we have made some policy implications.
