The model explores the conditions for an endogenous social transition from a high-corruption state to a low-corruption state. The majority of researchers focus on the effects on corrup- tion, while this model specifically addresses the issue of dynamics of corruption. In par- ticular, the model shows that “stable corrupt system” may be quite unstable and transition
to lower level of corruption under certain conditions. The change happens endogenously, without any change in the system and its structure.
