There is limited development economics research on low-level corruption, though it is often rampant and can hinder development programs. This project examines this understudied area by running an experiment on measures aimed at reducing low-level corruption among Kenya’s postal service. To empirically test the economic consequences of persuasion in the context of corruption, the study compares parcel theft incidents with randomly-assigned persuasive messages written on their exterior.
