Influence of Political Regimes on Innovations in Post-communist States
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
2017
The research is focused on the studying of the influence of political regimes on innovative productivity in post-communist states. I conducted the regression analysis with time-series–cross-section (TSCS) data to define interrelation between variables. It has been revealed that the political regime defines incentives of the power to support or to block the production of innovations. As a result, the democratic regimes are more inclined to produce innovations than non-democratic. Moreover, distinction in the innovative activity of the countries can be explained by the U-shape relationship with the political regime. Thus, the post-communist countries with the competitive authoritarianism are inclined to produce innovations to a lesser extent, than the democratic and non-democratic regimes.
