    Public Economics. We investigate empirically the determinants of the quality of governments in a large cross-section of countries. We assess government performance using measures of government intervention, public sector efficiency, public good provision, size of government, and political freedom. We find that countries that are poor, close to the equator, ethnolinguistically heterogeneous, use French of socialist laws, or have high proportions of Catholics or Muslims exhibit inferior government performance. We also find that the larger governments tend to be the better performing ones. The importance of historical factors in explaining the variation in government performance across countries sheds light on the economic, political, and cultural theories of institutions.

    Institutions Revisited: Were Fortunes Reversed? Google Scholar Rodrik, D. Then imagine two sailors for life, who in mid-ocean approach hulls, compare the cards and begin to discuss something important, which is not right to speak and that every academy for giving reliable and 'obvious'.

    A Dictionary of Epidemiology

    The problem is that the two whisper - even in the midst of the sea is not permissible to talk about - is whether there is the archipelago of "certain things". Archipelago reported differently on the charts. The first sailor Masoni Marco Vinicio says that the cards are the transcription of attempted solutions, graphic metaphors, illusory tricks, tell stories, and that the truth is transient, and its existence is only possible in the archipelago of the paradoxes.

    The other pilot, Bruno Vezzani, argues that "the cards are mere representations and maps are not the territory, only if you accept that we have the chart as fiction and spirit of reason and pragmatic tight, it helps us to find the land we seek, even if it is different from how people think it is.

    Everyone in the glow of dawn, waking often, we suddenly find apprentices. Doubt assails the transparency of the air makes things too complicated and defined. The hope is that someone somewhere knows how they are actually matters of life and teach us what and how, and especially to simplify the chaos, uncertainty set in order and face reality coincide with words.

    Someone from Parmenides to Wittengstein, Masoni reminds us, has already told us that knowledge coincides with the language and the world through him we see is an invention. Alice worried as we wonder "What will become of our name if we go into the woods of the things that have no name?

    Dear reader imagining the indefinite lost at sea, I suppose at this point you turn the volume of your radio on board. The two, Vezzani and Mason, they're not talking about personal Rovelli, discuss their experience, but look, if you have ear and eye, are also talking of your charts. Perhaps this introduction is superfluous, imagine that you're impatient. E 'for this reason that the majority miss the introductions or prefaces, and what nobody has ever found fault with.

    Despite being among those who would abolish this practice in its ritual forms and ornamental, the introduction can be a useful accessory, a bit 'as the setting for some pictures. Used to better define the look, to move towards the prospects of the painting.

    Dear reader, I tell you now that if you're not a sailor, if you're not into that certain problems, maybe you'll find topics to discuss with airtight two authors. For example, if you're a seminarian, a student of psychological matters, rather than an apprentice on a ship hub philosophy or sociology, you may be disappointed, for the few words that remind your specialized vocabulary for example, the term "group" , those same that could mislead you and do not understand that, with no mention, you can talk much more than "run" and "therapy", technical procedures, or diagnostic evaluations.

    Few dense pages, the more yeast bread, the baker's art more suitable food. Vezzani Bruno and Marco Vinicio Masoni, have written letters, made it a book, or have created a book to write letters, but it does not concern us.

    What interests us is to understand what it can to listen and think and imagine what you say. Perhaps you read these few pages is an antidote to the forms of artificial intelligence that engulf the internet and the tireless workshops for academic careers, from books about autism child, or to large drops ooze from some respectable depressing article.

    Although written by two experienced professionals, these letters will not talk much about psychology, a term whose abuse often relegates the intelligence to house arrest, as the word psychiatry over the human passions to mandatory medical treatment.

    This unique match will result in you reader a healthy confusion, increasing the likelihood of them discover the wonders of post-modern. What I do not know does not leave gaps in the world, and that you know well from seeing each other.
