Economies and Political Regimes

Economies and Political Regimes

(p.1) 1 Economies and Political Regimes
Regimes, Politics, and Markets


Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the relationship between economy and politics in the new democracies. It looks at the association from two angles. Firstly, it considers whether politics has an effect on economic performance, and whether this action in turn brings about political outcomes. It attempts to find out if the economy of a regime is responsible for its political picture. The chapter goes into the economic maps of democracies to discover the degree to which they encourage or oppose political change. Secondly, the chapter looks at authoritarian and democratic regimes and their impact on the respective economies. It studies the efficiency of the two to bring forth the differences in them. It delves into the ability of both types of governments to control their financial state of affairs, and their capability to reform them in times of need.

Keywords:   economy, politics, democracy, authoritarian, political regime
