Abstract

Haiti e la Repubblica Dominicana, gli stati che occupano rispettivamente la parte sinistra e destra dell’isola di Hispaniola, rappresentano un caso di divergenza economica e di inversione delle posizioni relative di reddito: se nell’epoca coloniale Haiti era più ricca dell’attuale Repubblica Dominicana, attualmente Haiti è uno dei paesi più poveri dell’emisfero Nord, mentre la seconda è un paese in via di sviluppo con un discreto livello di reddito pro-capite. In questo lavoro analizziamo le possibili cause istituzionali della divergenza, soffermandoci sul ruolo della diversa percentuale di europei presenti nelle due parti dell’isola dal XVII secolo e della diversa allocazione della terra dal XIX secolo.
