Religion, Freedoms And Wealth
In the specific literature, religious diversity has received important attention. The present study contributes to the literature of economics of religion by examining the impact of religious freedom and other specific variables of freedom (like economic freedom, political freedom and civil liberties) on the Gross Domestic Product per capita PPP. Following Alon and Chase (2005), in the sections that follow we develop a rationale as to whether the selected variables of freedom, including the religious one, should affect Gross Domestic Product per capita PPP and, then, discuss the results and their importance.
