A cultural model of performance at the central government level

The paper intends to draw a possible framework for evaluating the performance of the administration at the central government level. We propose a simple pool-data model in which we tried to make a connection between main macroeconomic variables that are in part the result of government actions in the pursuit of its social end economic objectives and some variables that are reflecting the social-cultural-political dimensions of government decisions.
