It will be shown, ﬁrst, that these variables increase the level of human development (without the income dimension) and then that human development causes GDP growth (Chapter 7). However, I will show that two fundamental factors are at the basis of this process of development: social capital and a strong middle class (Chapter 8). I used OLS cross-country regressions to test these models. 2SLS methods and IV approaches were also used in both Chapters 7 and 8 in order to check for endogeneity problems.
Furthermore, a state of systemic vacuum, chaos and disorganisation in the economic framework was created. Oliver Blanchard (1997: 10) refers to this period as a systemic vacuum and as an economy of chaos. The WC became the dominant paradigm in transition economies, being implemented in order to ‘adjust, stabilize and privatize’ the economies using a ‘Structural Adjustment’ programme, often uncritically implemented as a universal formula (Stiglitz, 1998). The WC referred to a decalogue of policies advised by Washington-based international ﬁnancial institutions and marked the end of Keynesianism as the dominant policy paradigm, both in developing and in developed countries.
Hence, development might be deﬁned as a process of economic growth through institutional change. During this process, it is necessary to have institutional policies and an active role taken by the state in order to foster development. By contrast, the role of institutions and of the state, in particular at the beginning of the transition process, have been largely under-estimated or ignored. In Chapter 4, I will also try to give a clear idea about the problems related to institutional change and to the inertia and conﬂicts between old and new institutions.
