Chapter Chapter 6 in Colonial Theories of Institutional Development, 2017, pp 69-92 from Springer
Abstract This chapter conducts a thorough sensitivity analysis that controls for the presence of outliers and sample selection, the use of alternative institutional indicators and different measures of endowments, and limiting the range in the distribution of endowments to French range. Among the alternative endowment variables considered, we use the level of population density before colonization, measures of land suitability for sugar versus wheat, and measures of mineral resources abundance. As with our baseline analysis, the evidence continues to reveal strong presence of heterogeneity in the relationship of colonial origin and endowments with current institutions.
