Many Tunisians overestimate the amount of corruption in their government. This project intends to answer two questions about this phenomenon: First, which bribes get overestimated, by how much, and by whom? Second, do people who overestimate bribery underinvest in profitable activities? To answer the first, I will compare measurements from a corruption-perceptions survey and an audit study in which enumerators record real-world bribe demands. To answer the second, I will run an information-treatment experiment to determine whether debiased subjects are more likely to make human-capital and financial investments.
