All Kinds of Growth Rates Can Throw You Out of Office


The above table shows the annual growth rate on each of the 4 times that we've changed governments since our independence. The first two times, the voters gave the challengers an opportunity to corrupt absolutely and both events happened after about 14 years with the same Prime Minister in a year of almost identical growth rates. The electorate seemed to have been quite unhappy with their governments since then: it has systematically been giving them the boot.
