Many scholarly articles on corruption give the impression that the world is populated by two types of people: the "Sanders" and the "Greasers".

It concludes that the evidence supporting the "Greasing the wheels hypothesis" is very weak and shows that there is no correlation between a new measure of managers' actual experience with corruption and GDP growth.
