How does SSI influence employment of disabled people?

Year: 2023

Presenter Name: Olga Krylova

It seems that researchers have riched an agreement that corruption is detrimental for country development. However, there is no consensus on what is the ideal candidate for a president post. For instance, in American history incumbents varied from those with no graduate degree (William Henry Harrison, Abraham Lincoln, Harry S. Truman) to those with degrees in different fields (e.g. law school, Business school). Woodrow Wilson was the only person who earned PHD. At the same time, it seems that education can be a predictor of the success of the president or lower level governor. In addition to knowledge, education teaches a person academic ethics and the wish to prefer long run benefits to short term ones (Abalkina 2020, Ravanilla 2016). It can be crucial for involvement of a person in office into corruption. Thus, I can use level of corruption as a proxy for the quality of the governer. My research asks how education influences the involvement of governer in corruption? This effect depends on the number of factors. According to (Abalkina 2020, governers with plagiarized PHD dissertations aren't subject to this effect of an education as a constraint on corruption.  (I'll exclude these governors from my sample.) Besides, if country's education system is corrupt the education has positive effect of corruption (Kaffenberger, 2012). It means I should control for the country where education was acquired by governor. My results can help in implementing anticorruption policies and policies of electing officials. The  concern that voters rely on education when electing an official while education plays minor role in governor's success was expressed by (Freier, 2016). I'm exploring what insentives make officials refrane from corruptions. Whether these insentives are formed by education or by some laws and punishments for corrupted official. Even if the country has invented the best laws, and system of checks and ballances, there still exists a human factor that's why citizens would like to elect a governer who is not only competent  but also responsible and honest.
