Lin (1992) Property Rights With a Cobb-Douglas production function of the following form: Y it = A it Π 4 k = 1 X γ k kit where the productivity parameter A it depends on the institutional vari- ables. The equation to be estimated is the following: ln Y it = α i + t + β 1 HRS it + 2 GP it + 3 MP it + 4 NG it + 5 MC it + Σ k = 1 4 kX kit + ε it where i is a province-speciFc intercept and t is a year-speciFc intercept. Key Results - Comparing columns (1) and (5) of Table 5, where in the Column (1) the previous equation is estimated while in Column (5) the same equation is estimated dropping all explanatory variables except for the institutional ones, i.e., HRS it ; GP it and MP it , we see that: 1 is signiFcantly positive and roughly the same in both esti-
