We Also Find that Such Relationships Depend on Corruption Perception, that Is, When Corruption Perception is High, the Negative Effects of Managerial Networking Are More Likely to Rise But the Positive Effects of Managerial Networking Are More Likely to Be Weakened. These Results Are Robust and Consistent Across Various Measurements and Models.
