Governance and Growth: A Simple Hypothesis Explaining Cross-Country Differences in Productivity Growth
Cross-country evidence shows that a subset of developing countries is growing very rapidly, taking advantage of opportunities to "catch-up" at the same time that other developing countries are growing slowly. We argue that this is due to differences in the quality of governance. In particular we show that productivity growth is higher in better-governed countries.
