Are economic and political freedoms interrelated?
Bruegel , 2018.
Democracy has not always accompanied market economy. But in modern societies, economic and political freedoms are increasingly interconnected. Democracy and market economy can support each other. This is particularly true in post-communist economies of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Thus, authoritarian tendencies observed in these and other regions can negatively affect quality of economic policy and governance.

It has always been peculiar to evolutionists to compare social and biological evolution, the latter as visualized by Charles Darwin.1 But it also seems possible and correct to draw an analogy with another great discovery in the field of evolutionary biology, with the homologous series of Nikolay Vavilov (1921; 1927; 1967). However, there is no ...

Elections serve a variety of functions in authoritarian regimes, yet scholars are divided on the question of why regime leaders permit elections in some settings but not in others. We argue that autocrats use subnational elections to co-opt and assuage powerful subnational elites. When subnational elites control significant political resources, such as political machines or ...
