Abstract

The paper is an critical approach to the article by Acemoglu, Johnson and Robinson (2005), “The colonial origins of comparative development: an empirical investigation”, which aims to identify the root causes of the differences in per capita income of countries by analyzing the differences between institutions and property rights. To do this, they propose a theory of institutional differences among countries colonized by Europeans, which they then use to derive a potential source of exogenous variation.
