Dear Stuti, This is an amazing insight. While intuitively I always believed that this link existed to see it actually reflected in the data is quite amazing. I wonder about two questions though: 1. If all sides of the political spectrum are indulging in it then does it have the same effect or does the situation go back to non-vote-buying scenario? 2. Also what is your sense of the direction of causality -- do you see more vote buying where problems are more severe? This may perhaps be an indication of the pragmatic politician acknowledging that there is not much he can do about the health system so he should do the best he can. Best regards, Nachiket
