This chapter tests the second set of hypotheses relating legislative lobbying behaviors to corruption levels. It uses data from the two country surveys; open-ended interviews; secondary sources; and the International Country Risk Guide (ICRG), Transparency International (TI), and the World Bank (WB) surveys to test whether business lobbying leads to higher political and overall corruption in India relative to Brazil and to all individual-focused countries in the sample. It also provides evidence on the conditional nature of the strength of the political links between political and overall corruption, and shows that these are stronger in party-focused India.

Keywords:   legislative lobbying, political corruption, business lobbying, political parties
