Abstract: The paper tests the hypothesis of a positive impact of democratization on growth, economic development and changes in well-being. We construct an empirical model to explain the impact of political institutions (democracy), economic institutions, financial market efficiency, scientific achievements and “financial or FDI” geography on growth. The empirical work based on a wide database including several indicators assessed by the authors support the hypothesis of decisive role of democratic political and efficient economic institutions in stimulating economic growth. The main results also highlight the importance of effective allocation of financial resources.
