Autocracies and property rights protection
Languages of publication
This paper uses a simple econometric model to test a hypothesis of the dependency of the level of property rights protection in autocratic regimes on a probability that the ruling power group stays in power. The model also tests if there is a significant relationship between a communist ideological orientation of a ruling group and property rights protection. The model is based on cross-sectional data over the period of 1984 – 2007, and its results indicate that the relationship between the level of property rights protection and the probability that a ruling power group stays in power is systematically significant only in 1980s; therefore the hypothesis does not seem to be generally valid. The outcomes of the model do not even support the significance of a communist ideological orientation for the level of property rights protection.
