PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) -- Are bribes sometimes justified? A new study finds that people in Guyana, Haiti and Belize are more likely to agree than any others in the Americas.
The report authored by Vanderbilt University researcher Juan Camilo Plata finds that male, wealthy, young and urban people are most likely to justify bribes.
He says justifications include bad economic conditions, a lack of trust in institutions and a perception that justice is arbitrary.
The study was released by the Latin American Public Opinion Project on Monday.
