Authoritarianism And Democracy In The Rating Equation


  • Stoia Alexandru Cosmin
  • Birau Cristian Radu


The challenges that the rating process has been submitted to after the onset of the contemporary economic crisis caused profound shifts on how this activity is performed. The parties involved in assessing and evaluating country risk have observed only distorting effects derived from the global recession, thus neglecting political valences inevitably associated to the difficult times that came to past. This article aims to evaluate the role of authoritarianism and democracy over investors, but also to analyze the situation of the social movements that took place in the Arab world.
