Abstract

The focus of the paper is to analyse the relation between institutions on cross-country economic development in Natural Resource Rich countries and OECD countries. The paper emphasizes the effects of economic freedom that interacts with total resource rents on total factor productivity, covering 30 Natural Resource Rich, 34 OECD countries in dynamic panel data for the period of 2000-2013. Findings suggest that as economic freedom increases along with resource rents, total factor productivity increases for natural resource rich countries. The results are mixed for OECD countries.
