The Law and Economics of Corruption
Since this is a literature review on the law and economics of corruption, I have chosen the papers below to be the focus of my paper. You can also refer to other papers if you see it applicable.
I want you to write a paper that is similar to this example paper below. However, this paper is very detailed and long, and I want you to summarize it in a way that only focuses on the important parts in the paper. Specifically, you will find the outline I need you to stick to below. The topics mentioned in the outline are all found in the example paper.
The main point in this paper is to organize theresearch papers in the field of law and economics to show how these ideas were built upon each other in a more detailed sense. Specifically, what are their starting points, assumptions, key research questions, and final findings?
