Land Property Rights and Agricultural Productivity: Evidence from Panama
Gabriel Fuentes Cordoba ()
No 67, DSSR Discussion Papers from Graduate School of Economics and Management, Tohoku University
This study estimates the e ects of land property rights on agricultural productivity in Panama. By using district-level panel data from 1990 to 2010, I find that land privatization increases rice yield in agricultural labor-intensive districts, but does not have any significant impact in non-agricultural labor-intensive districts. Then, by using household-level data, I find that households with registered land titles are more likely to obtain an agricultural loan and undertake landattached and land mobile investment.
