Abstract

Is constitution linked to poverty difference between countries? In this article, we attempt to answer this question. We gather ideas of the temporal incoherence and the utility functions of political entrepreneurs. We have established a positive strong link between the constitutional instability, and poverty. The more a country changes its constitution, the higher the level of poverty.
