Corrupt Youngsters Eye Government Jobs In India: Study
Hanna wrote, “Overall, we find that dishonest individuals - as measured by the dice task - prefer to enter government service," reports TOI.
"Importantly, we show that cheating on this task is also predictive of fraudulent behaviors by real government officials," Hanna added.
The study has also emphasized on bureaucratic absenteeism and it was revealed that those who have the urge to cheat have given maximum number of false reasons or a lame excuse for their absenteeism. It also indicates strongly that these individuals have the nature to indulge in fraudulent activities without a second thought.
The study concluded stating, "Through this study, we offer evidence that college students who cheat on a simple task are more likely to prefer to enter government service after graduation. Importantly, we also show that cheating on this task is also predictive of fraudulent behaviors by real government officials, which implies that the measure captures a meaningful propensity towards corruption. Given that the existing methods of measuring corruption only apply for those who are already entrenched in the bureaucracy, our validation of a measure of cheating against real-world corruption outcomes offers an important tool for future research on selection and corruption,” reports TOI.
