Democrats, Dictators, and Demonstrators
Using a data set of democratic movements and democratic transitions that took place between 1960 and 1990, I investigate the implications for economic growth of these events. There are two comparisons of interest: successful democratic movements to movements that are repressed, and successful democratic movements to democratic transitions that occurred without such movements. None of these events has a positive effect on economic growth. Copyright 2003, Oxford University Press.
