Economics of the Resource Curse
Sergei Guriev () and
Konstantin Sonin ()
VOPROSY ECONOMIKI, 2008, vol. 4
The paper surveys economic and political science literature on resource curse, with a primary focus on the role of institutions. These studies show that resource abundance leads now not so much to macroeconomic risks of Dutch disease as to possible deterioration of the quality of government and political institutions. In particular, cross-country evidence on the impact of rising oil prices on media freedom and quality of corporate governance is discussed.
