Research Fellow Giuseppe Dari-Mattiacci published in The Review of Economics and Statistics

Tinbergen Institute Research Fellow Giuseppe Dari-Mattiacci recently published a paper in The Review of Economics and Statistics, entitled The Virtuous Cycle of Property

Research Fellow Giuseppe Dari-Mattiacci published in The Review of Economics and Statistics

Dari-Mattiacci is professor of law and economics at the University of Amsterdam (UvA).

His paper, co-written with Marco Fabbri, deals with the way in which formalizing private property rights has a positive effect on the propensity to respect the property of others. In their paper, the authors evaluate a recent large-scale land tenure reform in West Africa that was the first of its kind to be implemented as a randomized control trial, which shows that the formalization of private property rights reduced an individual’s willingness to take from others’ endowment.
