Abstract

This paper analyzes the economic changes and the changes in some welfare indicators associated to the political alternation and to a changing institutional framework in the Mexican state of Baja California. The paper uses the institutional approach to economic development under the hypothesis that the political alternation and the institutional transformations associated to it have not modified significantly the economic and development patterns of the state. The authors estimate and analyze value added functions and analyze some features of the institutional change and important welfare indicators. The paper finds evidence favoring the hypothesis, which brings interesting implications at the Federal level with a president of a different party in office.
