(1) Institutions and Investment in Natural Resources:

Evidence from Liberia
In two complementary projects, we are looking at how institutions — both property rights and community-based monitoring — affect investments in land and forest resources.
(2) Property Rights, Investment, and Local Fiscal Capacity:
Evidence from Colombia
We are studying the effects of helping squatters formalize their property rights. More secure tenure could enable individual investment and promote tax compliance.
