Can Collectivism Promote Bribery?

Why are there national differences in the propensity to bribe? One cross-national correlational study and two causal experiments suggest that the degree of collectivism versus individualism prevalent in national cultures promotes the propensity to offer bribes abroad. Furthermore, the effect is mediated by individuals’ sense of responsibility for their actions.
