An analogous breakdown between direct brib­ ery and indirect systemic effects can also be made in the case of state capture. 33 ANTICORRUPTION IN TRANSITION 2: CORRUPTION IN ENTERPRISE-STATE INTERACTIONS 1999–2002 These five variables are interrelated; for ex­ ample, firms that pay bribes more frequently will in many cases (though not necessarily all) be expected to pay a higher share of rev­ enues in bribes. Furthermore, a manager’s perceptions of the extent to which corrup­ tion is a systemic obstacle to business will be affected at least in part by how frequently bribes are paid and how much the firm pays in bribes (though there are other factors in the broader environment that affect man­ agers’ perceptions as well).

In line with the aggregate numbers noted above, the high­ est percentages of state capture occur in SEE countries—Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, FYR Macedonia, and Serbia and Montenegro—as well as in Tajikistan. Among public institutions, firms report the highest impact from capture in the commercial courts and the least impact from capture in central banks. ” On the basis of this question, the share of “cap­ tor” firms—those actively engaging in state capture—can be compared across countries and over time.

The first part is the direct cost, or actual bribes the firm pays. From this can be subtracted the direct benefits that the firm re­ ceives for paying the bribe. These benefits may include, for example, faster processing of a re­ quest for a permit or license or a reduction in the fine for not reporting income to tax authorities. The direct cost minus the direct benefit is a mea­ sure of the net direct cost of corruption to the firm. When it is positive, the direct cost outweighs the benefits, and `the firm has an economic incen­ tive to support anticorruption efforts.
