Our dynamic panel data results suggest that countries only slowly converge to their long-run income values as predicted by current democracy levels, however. African countries may therefore be currently too democratic relative to their income levels. In keeping with this possibility, a significant number of countries are experiencing political ‘back sliding’: elections are won by the use of illicit tactics, term limits on political leaders have been overturned and there have been unconstitutional seizures of power.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2012-12-04</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Bates, Robert H.</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dc:contributor>Fayad, Ghada</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Bates, Robert H.</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-03-21T10:54:31Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Hoeffler, Anke</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/45533"/> <dcterms:title>The state of democracy in Sub-Saharan Africa</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-03-21T10:54:31Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dc:contributor>Hoeffler, Anke</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Fayad, Ghada</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
