The chosen institutions are primary schooling, the police and medical service. A Granger causality model is used to measure the causal relation and the results from the tests show that there is no causal relationship between growth and confidence in institutions. The result indicates that trust is not sensitive to changes in growth and that growth is not affected by changes in trust in the short run. (Less)
