The Effects of Democracy on Economic Growth

A decade after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, more than sixty countries in Africa have achieved democratic transitions. This is a significant and positive trend for freedom-loving people around the world, but the global trend to democratisation is fragile and needs further support. There are differing views on the future of the democratisation process. One school of thought expects that its spread will bring profound positive effects on international relations, while the other rejects its value. Nevertheless, it is important to note that the countries with the largest number of democracy are also reliable partners in international trade.

Recent academic studies have found that democratisation is beneficial for national growth. However, the effect of democratisation has not been studied as yet. The most common factors that determine whether a country’s economy grows or not are the country’s level of development and the educational level of its newly elected democratic leaders. As a result, there is no clear indication of how to determine which factors contribute to economic growth in a democratic country.

A study conducted in the UK found that a democracy is more peaceful than an authoritarian regime. This result was not the case in the United States. Many authoritarian governments claimed that the rise of democratic regimes was detrimental to their economies and undermined their ability to help poor nations develop. This finding is difficult to support, as the definition of democracy is relatively vague and subject to wide interpretation. To draw a clearer picture of the effects of democratisation, a thorough analysis of a country’s history and culture is necessary.

Recent academic research indicates that democratisation results in national economic growth. The only known factors that affect the success of democratization include a country’s level of development and the educational level of its newly elected democratic leaders. Interestingly, a recent study from MIT Sloan Management Review concluded that 77% of respondents reported increased access to useful data. This suggests that democratisation is a beneficial process. It also helps to explain the economic growth of a country.

The study by the Freedom House, a think-tank and institution founded in 1945, demonstrates that democratisation has led to significant economic growth. The authors’ findings also point to a variety of factors that determine the success of democratisation, including the education level of new democratic leaders. In addition, they note that there are a number of countries that have failed to reach the goal of democracy. A country that is unable to attain this goal can be described as a “democracy in disguise.”

The impact of democratisation is far-reaching. But the study does not explain the causes and consequences of the change. The first study examined the effects of democratisation on economic growth in the Central African Republic, while the second examined the effects of democratisation on economic development in South Africa. These two studies, however, only looked at the immediate effects of a country’s democratisation, but a country’s level of development will determine the long-term success of democratisation.
