AbstractThis paper revisits the important issue of whether economic development promotes democracy by using the system-GMM method, which is superior to the difference-GMM method when dependent variables (democracy in this paper) are highly persistent over time. With the same data set as that of, we find that the system-GMM estimated coefficient of income per capita is positive and highly statistically significant, in sharp contrast to the difference-GMM results reported by . Furthermore, employing the US and Colombia as an example, we find that much of the difference in democracy across countries can be explained by the corresponding difference in income per capita. © 2012 Association for Comparative Economic Studies.
