Abstract

Friends from home need to help each other when it is necessary. Especially when individuals who call the same area their home meet each other far away from it, the willingness to help a stranger can be bigger than at their actual home. The difference between a good deed and a crime can be obvious, but the distinction between preferential treatment and corruption is difficult to make, particularly in different cultural contexts and situations. However, corruption is not automatically defined as the exchange of money or gifts for a decision, license or preferential treatment, nor as doing a simple favour for a friend. In this paper, the theory of New Institutional Economics will be used to explain how the term “home” can be a confidence-building factor and a base for corrupt transactions.
