講座摘要:

The level of economic development during democratization exerts long-lasting effects on growth, possibly by giving permanent birthmarks to newly minted institutions. This paper finds that democracies born in weak development tend to have weak institutions and slow growth, while in contrast, those with adequate development at the political transition time establish strong institutions and achieve faster growth. Salient differences between them also exist in other dimensions such as population growth rates and populism tendencies. These results are based on data in 1960-2010 and robust to various specifications and endogeneity issues. The paper shows that without appropriate development, democratization does not facilitate growth.

Keywords: Democracy, Growth, Economic Development, Institutions, Democratization, Modernization, Human Capital.
