- an economist looks for a calling in betting on sports
Actually I can see how this will eventually reduce corruption, by making it harder to do shady deals in secret. Once low-level corruption vanishes from day to day life people become much less tolerant of it at higher levels. For example, there is a ton of corruption in American politics, but at least every time a scandal breaks, there's a hue & cry & someone has to resign, unlike India. The difference is that corruption is not thought of as normal. So yay for India! Now maybe other countries (we're looking at you, Hamid Karzai) can learn from this.
