Jeffrey Milyo: Getting a better handle on government corruption

Jeffrey Milyo, economics professor, University of Missouri

Two researchers found the data used to gauge how much corruption takes place in the United States relies on data they describe as sparse and of dubious quality. Professors Adriana Cordis of Winthrop University and Jeffrey Milyo of the University of Missouri argue better data will lead to better understanding of the scope of corruption and how to deal with it. Milyo provides Federal Drive with Tom Temin more about the research.
