The Support Vector Machines Democracy Index (SVMDI) is continuous on the [0,1] interval and enables very detailed and sensitive measurement of democracy for 185 countries in the period between 1981 and 2011. Application of the SVMDI yields results which highlight a robust positive relationship between democracy and economic growth. We argue that the ambiguity in recent studies mainly originates from the lack of sensitivity of traditional democracy indicators. Analyzing transmission channels through which democracy exerts its influence on growth, we conclude that democratic countries feature better educated populations, higher investment shares, and lower fertility rates, but not necessarily higher levels of redistribution.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-10-28T09:15:44Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Gründler, Klaus</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Krieger, Tommy</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Democracy and growth : evidence from a machine learning indicator</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Krieger, Tommy</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2016-12</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Gründler, Klaus</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-10-28T09:15:44Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
