Privat äganderätt och ekonomisk tillväxt

Abstract

Uppsatsen sammanfattar den nationalekonomiska och ekonomisk-historiska forskningen om sambandet mellan privat äganderätt och långsiktig ekonomisk tillväxt. Huvudbudskapet är att det föreligger ett robust positivt samband, även om det också finns betydande mätproblem som försvårar alltför starka slutsatser. Västvärldens ekonomiska historia innehåller flera exempel som bekräftar denna positiva koppling. Bl.a. var den bristande respekten för privat ägande i såväl 1600-talets Frankrike och Spanien som efterkrigstidens Östtyskland och Nordkorea förödande för dessa länders långsiktiga ekonomiska utveckling. På liknande sätt, men i motsatt riktning, utgjorde äganderättsförstärkningarna under 1700- och 1800-talens skiftesrörelse och konstitutionella reformer positiva influenser för Europas utveckling. Erfarenheterna från landreformer och formaliseringar av privat ägande i dagens utvecklingsländer är också huvudsakligen positiva. Kapitlet beskriver även forskningen om intellektuell äganderätt och dess betydelse för nutida och historisk ekonomisk tillväxt. Här är resultaten i allmänhet svagare, sannolikt beroende på att ekonomisk teori faktiskt inte ger lika entydigt positiva förutsägelser för tillväxten. Icke desto mindre anser de flesta ekonom-historiker att den intellektuella äganderätten var en grundförutsättning för den industriella revolutionen, och också studier av teknikspridning och innovationsmönster i dagens globaliserade värld pekar på en positiv roll för äganderätten, särskilt vad gäller den fattigaste gruppen av länder där en stor del av produktionen kan förläggas.
