Institutionenökonomik by Stefan Voigt( Book )

Warum haben weltweit nur einige hundert Millionen Menschen ein sehr hohes Pro-Kopf-Einkommen, während Milliarden unterernährt sind? Warum führt der Import von - andernorts sehr erfolgreichen - Verfassungen häufig nicht zu Wohlstand und Stabilität? Institutionenökonomen beanspruchen, diese Fragen anders und umfassender anzugehen als traditionelle Ökonomen. Die vorliegende Einführung ist nicht nur für Studierende der Wirtschaftswissenschaften geeignet, sondern auch für solche anderer Fächer. Denn auch informelle Institutionen wie Sitten, Gebräuche und Traditionen werden behandelt, weil immer deutlicher wird, dass diese entscheidend für Wachstum und Entwicklung sind. "Dieses gelungene Lehrbuch wird nicht nur Ökonomen wärmstens empfohlen, sondern auch Politologen, Soziologen und Juristen, die nach einem Einstiegswerk in die Neue Institutionenökonomik suchen." Prof. Dr. Chris Mantzavinos, Universität Witten-Herdecke

Determinants of constitutional change why do countries change their form of government? by Bernd Hayo( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A country's form of government has important economic and political consequences, but the determinants that lead countries to choose either parliamentary or presidential systems are largely unexplored. This paper studies this choice by analyzing the factors that make countries switch from parliamentary to presidential systems (or vice versa). The analysis proceeds in two steps. First, we identify the survival probability of the existing form of government (drawing on a proportional hazard model). In our model, which is based on 169 countries, we find that geographical factors and former colonial status are important determinants of survival probability. Also, presidential systems are, ceteris paribus, more likely to survive than parliamentary ones. Second, given that a change has taken place, we identify the underlying reasons based on panel data logit models. We find that domestic political factors are more important than economic ones. The most important factors relate to intermediate internal armed conflict, sectarian political participation, degree of democratization, and party competition, as well as the extent to which knowledge resources are distributed among the members of society. -- constitutional change ; institutional dynamics ; form of government ; endogenous constitutions ; separation of powers

The relevance of judicial procedure for economic growth by Bernd Hayo( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has been argued that procedural formalism undermines economic efficiency by fostering rent-seeking and corruption. We challenge this view by arguing that a number of judicial procedures foster economic growth by increasing the predictability of court decisions, which leads to more transactions and higher investment levels. We investigate the effects on economic growth of 15 judicial procedures. Employing a standard growth model, we find in a cross-section of 67 countries that timeliness, writtenas opposed to oralprocedures, and the right to counsel have a positive effect on growth, whereas the number of independent procedural actions as well as the presumption of innocence have negative effects. Our results partially contradict the results of former studies based on the Lex Mundi dataset. -- Judicial procedure ; legal formalism ; judicial independence ; rule of law ; investment ; growth
Power over prosecutors corrupts politicians cross country evidence using a new indicator by Anne van Aaken( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is hypothesized that prosecution agencies that are dependent on the executive have less incentives to prosecute crimes committed by government members which, in turn, increases their incentives to commit such crimes. Here, this hypothesis is put to an empirical test focusing on a particular kind of crime, namely corruption. In order to test it, it was necessary to create an indicator measuring de jure as well as de facto independence of the prosecution agencies. The regressions show that de facto independence of prosecution agencies robustly reduces corruption of officials

The economic effects of federalism and decentralization a cross-country assessment by Stefan Voigt( )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores the idea that institutional details matter and that attempts to estimate the economic effects of federalism by employing a simple dummy variable neglect potentially important institutional details. Based on a principal component analysis, seven aspects of both federalism and decentralization are used as variables for explaining differences in (1) fiscal policy, (2) government effectiveness, (3) economic productivity, and (4) happiness. The results show that institutional details do, indeed, matter. Different aspects of federalism impact on the outcome variables to different degrees. This study adds to our knowledge on the transmission mechanisms of federalism and decentralization. -- federalism ; decentralization ; fiscal federalism ; economic effects of constitutions ; constitutional economics
