Political regime durability, development and governance: the Romania’s case

The paper analyzes empirically, in Romania’s case, the relationships between political regime durability (dependent variable) and economic development & form of government (independent vari-ables). The analysis is based on the construction of a linear “Probit Model” and the data set is covering the period 1926-2007. The main results show that, in Romania, the political regime longevity is one in which the de-mocratic system is very strong, the economic development is high and the state is organized in the form of monarchy. By exception, a political regime may have longevity even if the political system is dictatorial, the economic development is insignificant and the state organization (monarchy or republic) has minimal influence.
