Corruption: are you an expert? [quiz]

Headlines regularly focus on political scandals and corruption. From public officials embezzling government monies, selling public offices, and trading bribes for favors to private companies generate public indignation and calls for reformcorruption, it seems, is inevitable. But what really is corruption, and who is responsible for its continuation?

Inspired by The Death of Expertise, in which Tom Nichols explores the dangers of the public rejection of expertise, we’ve created a series of quizzes to test your knowledge. Take this quiz to see how much you know about corruption. Then watch the video below to see how OUP employees fared against economist Ray Fisman.
