Title: Incomplete Information as a Deterrent to Corruption
Abstract: This paper considers an incomplete information model where a
supervisor is entrusted with the job of supervising a number of
potentially corrupt agents of different types and the type of an
individual agent may not be known to the supervisor. The paper shows
how lack of complete information available to the law enforcing agent
can help to prevent crime at least to a limited extent by making
rewards and penalties more effective.
