The Role of Geography and Agriculture in the Establishment of Property Rights

Bagley, Mark (2009)
Department of Economics
Abstract
The subject of institutions and their impact upon economic growth has been widely explored by a variety of literature. What has often been ignored, however, is the topic of how institutions arise in the first place. This paper thus takes the view that institutions are shaped by geography, and specifically, the agricultural sector. It is found that there exists some statistical and legal evidence to support such a view.
