História econômica do Brasil…de verdade

The Western Expansion as a Common
Pool Problem
The Contrasting Histories of the Brazilian and
North American Pioneers
By FERNANDO ZANELLA and CHRISTOPHER WESTLEY*
ABSTRACT. Before the year 1600, Brazil and the United States were
very similar regions in terms of geographic development and colonial
status, and yet both countries developed in remarkably different ways.
In this article, we apply institutional analysis and the common pool
approach to explain differences in the western expansion of Brazil
and the United States. We find that (i) such analysis complements
much of the previous literature that heretofore explained differences
in these regions using sociological and ideological analytical tools, and
(ii) the theory that the distinctive behavior between the Brazilian
bandeirantes and the North American pioneers is due to sociological
factors is refuted.

The Western Expansion as a Common Pool Problem – The Contrasting Histories of the Brazilian and North American Pioneers

Onde achei isto? Bem, o proprio Zanella me confidenciou. Mas eis aqui onde foi publicado: American Journal of Economics and Sociology, Vol. 68, No. 3 (July, 2009).

Quem disse que a história econômica do Brasil só existe em livro não revisado de economistas falecidos? A história econômica é bem mais interessante e rica do que querem alguns.
