Resumo

O Prêmio Nobel Douglass North desenvolveu suas idéias por um longo período, que vai desde o início dos anos 1970 ao final dos anos 1990. À medida que desenvolveu sua análise histórica, North se tornou convicto da existência de um vínculo positivo entre crescimento econômico e liberdades. Este trabalho procura demonstrar que, não obstante o caráter incompleto da análise de North das democracias modernas, ele estabeleceu um programa de pesquisa para novos desenvolvimentos analíticos e históricos, na medida em que foi bem-sucedido na caracterização da barganha entre Estado e sociedade na especificação de direitos de propriedade.

Abstract

Nobel Prize Douglass North’s ideas have developed for a long time, since the beginning of the seventies to the end of the nineties. As his historical analysis developed, North became convinced of the positive relationship between economic growth and liberties. This paper tries to demonstrate that, notwithstanding the incompleteness of North’s analysis of modern democracies, North has established a research program to new analytical and historical developments, as he successfully characterized the bargain between state and society in the specification of property rights.

Key words: North, Douglass C. Property rights. Transaction costs. State. Economic growth
