Abstract

This paper investigates the relationship between institutional quality and economic performance the 32 Mexican states over the period 2003 -- 2010. Using dynamic panel GMM estimation and the Fraser Institutes index of economic freedom, I find that freedom has an ambiguous impact on economic growth and improvements undermines employment. These results are corroborated with dynamic OLS model and panel fixed and random effects models.
