Example text

If rules have no salience for the individual except where follow ing them maxim ises selfinterest, then the character of a rule is not being recog nised. If we think all other agents have a wholly oppor tun istic attitude to the rules of a game, then the game falls apart (much as if we were to assume that when people speak they only ever say what they think will work to their maximal advant age in a given situation – that assumption would destroy the conditions for conver sation, collaboration or friend ship).

This means that the issue cannot be wholly reduced to provid ing the right incent ive structures for people’s interests. Indeed, it is wildly ambitious to try to establish a system of cross- check ing interests that can 24 The definition of political corruption ensure that both the principal actors and those responsible for reward ing or penal ising their behaviour act to sustain the polit ical order while also acting maxim ally in their own interests. It is more useful to think in terms of how to frame people’s relationship to the polit ical system so that they share (some of ) its norms and values rather than having their aspir ations and expect ations framed by wholly non-polit ical expect ations, whether economic or cultural.

Corruption, then, is derog ation from these norms, but it is not just any derog ation. Incompetence is not the same as corruption. Nor are all derog ations that involve the pursuit of self-interest corrupt, since some (such as treason on the one hand, or informal collect ive bargain ing to raise wages on the other) should be distinguished from corruption. What should be clear is that the defi n ition now seems less convincing, since a huge amount depends on the structure of norms and expect ations that frame the agent’s relationship to her principal, and frame the range of legit im ate expect ations the principal may have.
