Non-religious countries experience greater economic growth, study finds


A shift away from religion may make countries more prosperous, according to a new study.

Using data on countries ranging from Albania to Zimbabwe, researchers analysed the relationship between values held by different nations and their GDPs.

They found that lack of religion tended to come before economic growth over the course of the 20th century a discovery that partially answers a long-standing question about the impact of secularisation on the economy.

2. My observation

No study necessary.

Look at the New World. The Mexican border divides the two continents between Catholic theocracy and other. It also divides them economically. Why is that?
