Using a new global data set, this article investigateswhether these illicit tactics are merely blemishes or substantially undermine the economicefficacy of elections. We show that illicit tactics are widespread, and that they reducethe incentive for governments to deliver good economic performance. Our analysis alsosuggests that in societies with regular free and fair elections, leaders do not matter foreconomic growth.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2019-03-20T11:19:47Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
