The 1999 Business Environment and Enterprise Performance Survey (BEEPS) assesses in detail the various dimensions of governance from the perspective of about 3,000 firms in 20 countries. The authors pay special attention to certain forms of grand corruption, notably state capture by parts of the corporate sector. The survey also measures other dimensions of grand corruption—including those associated with public procurement—and quantifies the more traditional (“petty”) forms of corruption.
