How to subvert democracy : Montesinos in Peru by John McMillan( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Which of the democratic checks and balances - opposition parties, the judiciary, a free press -is the most critical? Peru has the full set of democratic institutions. In the 1990s, the secret-police chief Vladimiro Montesinos systematically undermined them all with bribes. We quantify the checks using the bribe prices. Montesinos paid television-channel owners about 100 times what he paid judges and politicians. One single television channel s bribe was four times larger than the total of the opposition politicians bribes. By revealed preference, the strongest check on the government s power was the news media
