The general interest article “Ética & Incentivos: o que diz a Teoria Econômica sobre recompensar quem denuncia a corrupção?” was published this week in the Economics blog “Brasil Economia e Governo”.
The article, in Portuguese, presents an economic analysis of a Bill that passed the Brazilian Federal District House of Representatives this month. The bill establishes a compensation for whistleblowers that, thanks to their initiative, are able to curb corruption and recover diverted public resources. The bill was later vetoed by the Federal District Governor.
