Theoretical work has provided convincing reasons to believe that corruption undermines economic development over time. Empirical tests of these theories have tended to look for relationships between corruption and different aspects of economic development using cross-country, large-n analysis. Most studies assume, however, that all developmental models are equally impacted by corruption at all times. This paper tests the proposition that corruption inevitably undermines economic development using the Peoples' Republic of China as a case study. The empirical results support the conclusion that thinking about corruption in context-dependent terms is valuable for helping understand the relationship between corruption and economic development.
