Notes for Pol 201 Essay
Przeworki and Lemongi
-Two theories, endogenous and exogenous (156-157)
-Endogenous: democracies emerge and dictatorships die as countries become
economically developed. Modernization theory
-(157-top half of 158 for explanation of specifically how it happens)
-Alternate visions of how it happens in Grover and Chief article
-Exogenous: bottom half of 157-top half of 158
-Exogenous might not be a fair test of Modernization theory though because
few existed for enough time to develop and achieve modernity (160)
-Singapore and Malaysia: perfect exogenous states
-Brazil Czech Republic and Portgual are perfect endogenous cases
-Modernization may explain why countries become developed but it has no
predictive power because there is no number at which we can say definitively
that a country will throw off democracy (163)
-Example of why Modernization theory is pretty bogus: Taiwan: (164)
-On the other hand, Per Capita Income has a strong causal relation to
SURVIVAL of democracies (165)
-Bottom of 165-middle of 166: explanation of why exogenous is probably right
-Opposing theory: modernization clearly didnt work in the third world (176)
-Top of 177, exogenous is more correct but still not fully correct
Alternate Theory: Acemoglu Johnson and Robinson
-Baxic argument page 2
-Page 6: the settlers wanted freedom. Wanted the colonies to be like home thus
DEMOCRACY
-Last paragraph of page 6: Australian example demonstrates that democracy
-In Africa, they set up absolutist states 7
-Strong correlation between institutions and economic success but its not
causal.
