Research note: Indicators of political and property rights

It is widely agreed that more attention should be paid to the influence of non-economic factors such as institutions on development.  But good data on institutions can be hard to find.  In the current issue of Governance, John Manuel Luiz, Luis Brites Pereira, and Guilherme Olivera explain how they developed indicators of political and property rights in one country — Mozambique — spanning the past century.  They plan to develop comparable indicators for all Southern African countries, providing a better foundation for “exploring the dynamics of economic growth and development over time.” Read the research note.
