Using cross-country data for about 70 countries and regional data for about 180 African provinces, we show that competition between Protestant and Catholic missionaries increased schooling in former colonies. Our evidence implies that Protestant missionaries increased schooling in Catholic countries by more than Catholic missionaries, but we cannot reject the hypothesis that the effect of Protestant and Catholic missionaries on educational outcomes was similar when missionaries of both denominations faced the same legal and institutional treatment. We interpret these results in the context of an economic rationale in which different institutions created differences in competitive pressures faced by Catholic and Protestant missionaries.

O melhor do novo Indiana Jones…

…é ouvir a soviética maluquinha fazer o mesmo discurso dos doutrinadores bolivarianos que, hoje em dia, espalham-se, também, em escolas públicas e privadas do Brasil.

Além disso, o filme é divertido. Putin leva uma surra, digo….seus soldados ideologicamente teleguiados levam uma surra. Aposto que os (de)formadores de opinião não demorarão em criticar o filme falando da “defunta” Guerra Fria (apesar de Chávez, Morales, o governo chinês, a aliança não-assumida entre esquerda brasileira e FARC, Kim Jong Il, Fidel Castro e, claro, Putin).

Harrison Ford ainda é o grande Indiana Jones!
