The correlation between incomes and democracy is well documented, but the exact nature of the relationship and direction of causation, if any, is still being debated. The empirical conceptualization of democracy to include the accumulation over time of social and political infrastructure upon which economic policy is devised and implemented is a novel and promising approach. We present three essays that extend our understanding of the relationship between democracy, expressed as "democratic capital," and economic growth.
