Summary One of the most discussed topics in comparative politics is the relationship between democracy and economic development. One of the best established results in this field is the positive relationship between income per capita and democracy. As first established by Seymour Martin Lipset, higher levels of income per capita are strongly associated with a higher likelihood that a country will be a democracy; lower income levels with a higher likelihood that a country will be a dictatorship (Lipset 1960).
