Editor’s note:  In our second posting on corruption in merging markets, we provide excerpts from David Ngs article The Impact of Corruption on Financial Markets, that reviews his work and related literature on the impact of corruption on financial markets. Additionally, we include commentary and an update on the topic by Dr. Ng.

Academic research on corruption in emerging markets is extensive. The EMI database contains 56 articles on the topic, too many to review in a single posting. Therefore, we have decided to cover the subject in two parts. In Part one, we review three articles that attempt to quantify supply-side determinants of bribery and briefly summarize recent research examining the relationship between guanxi and bribery. Part two will review an article by Cornell’s David Ng that examines the impact of corruption on financial markets.

Cross-border M&A (CBM&A) from emerging markets increased rapidly from $29 billion in 2002 to $125 billion in 2008 and stood at $121 billion last year (Table 1). While $125 billion worth of M&A transactions may not seem like much – particularly when compared to the multi trillion market capitalization of major emerging market equity exchanges - it represents fully 39% of the world’s CBM&A activity in 2012. In fact, emerging markets have accounted for 25% of world CBM&A activity during the last five years.

In this inaugural column, EMI examines a working paper by its academic director, Andrew Karolyi, and research by visiting scholar Jin Young Jung of Inha University in Seoul, Korea providing compelling evidence that high quality published research on emerging markets (and more generally on markets outside North America) is under-represented relative to the economic importance of these markets.
