Description

On 21 March, Prof Avinash Dixit, Distinguished Adjunct Professor of Economics, Lingnan University, shared his research findings on corruption during a public lecture entitled “Corruption: Demand-Side and Supply-Side Solutions”.

Corruption is probably the greatest obstacle to successful social and economic development. In his lecture, Prof Dixit pointed out that it is difficult to eliminate corruption because the governments and their agencies in charge of the effort are often the same ones who benefit most from continued corruption. To cope with the problem, Prof Dixit suggested that successful anti-corruption reforms should not only depend on top-down promulgation of laws and penalties, but also broader support from the business community and larger society, such as setting up industry-based proactive tribunals to adjudicate suspected cases.

Prof Dixit was appointed as Distinguished Adjunct Professor of Economics at Lingnan University in May 2009 for a term of five years. During his six-week visit to Lingnan each year, Prof Dixit gave lectures and conduct research in campus. This is the last year of Prof Dixit’s term of appointment.

嶺南大學經濟學系特聘兼任教授Avinash Dixit於3月21日舉行的「貪污:針對需求及供應的解決方案」公開講座闡釋貪污問題。

貪污或許是社會及經濟發展最大的障礙。Dixit教授在講座中指出,由於政府及其轄下負責打擊貪污的機關,往往也是貪污持續的最大得益者,因此杜絕貪污變得非常困難。針對這個問題,Dixit教授提出,除了從上而下頒布法律和刑罰外,也需要商界和社會的廣泛支持,例如成立由業界積極參與的委員會審理懷疑個案,才可促進反貪污改革的成功。

嶺大於2009年5月委任Dixit教授為經濟學系特聘兼任教授,任期五年。在任期間,Dixit教授每年到訪嶺大約六星期,期間主持講座及從事研究。今年是Dixit教授任期的最後一年。
