Abstract

Education has always been viewed as a predictor of a nation’s level of political participation. The levels of political activity in Latin America and East Asia, however, disprove this belief. SMU economics professor Davin Chor and Harvard public policy professor Filipe R. Campante attempt alternative explanations from an economic perspective. In the paper, “Schooling, Political Participation, and the Economy”, factors such as resources and human capital were examined.
