Abstract

The paper investigates and tests the hypothesis that the intelligent and educated people are honest taxpayer citizens. In order to validate this hypothesis, the empirical part follows a cross-sectional approach, with OLS and robust estimations, across 55 countries. Considering the IQ as main proxy for human intelligence, the obtained results do not allow us to validate this hypothesis.
