We study the prices paid for basic inputs during a crackdown on corruption in the public hospitals of the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina during 1996-97. As in previous, informal accounts of corruption-crackdowns, there is a well defined, negative effect on the measures used to capture corruption. Prices paid by hospitals for basic inputs fall by 18% during the first six months of the crackdown. After this period prices rise, but they are still 10% lower than the pre-crackdown level.
