    Large-scale land acquisitions, or land grabs, concentrate in developing countries which are also known for their corruption-friendly setting caused by a weak institutional framework. We argue that corrupt elites exploit this given institutional set-up to strike deals with international investors at the expense of the local population. Using panel data for 157 countries from 2000-2011, we provide evidence that these land deals indeed occur more often in countries with higher levels of corruption.

    consumer and investor confidence despite business
    environment and socio-political challenges. The economic
    impact of the floods that hit Myanmar from July 2015 is
    still being assessed, but will likely adversely affect the
    main rice crop this year. According to preliminary analysis
    of census data, the areas most affected by the floods are

    This paper studies the effects of
    differences in local administrative burdens in Italy in the
    years 2005–2007 preceding a major reform that sped up firm
    registration procedures. Combining regulatory data from a
    survey on Italian provinces before the reform (costs and
    time to start a business) with industry-level entry rates of
    limited liability firms, it explores the effects of
    regulatory barriers on the average of the annual entry rates

    Honduras

    Honduras’ recent economic performance
    has been positive, especially taking into account the global
    economic context. Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth
    accelerated from 2.8 percent in 2013 to 3.1 percent in 2014
    and 3.6 percent in the first half of 2015. Growth has been
    supported by improved terms of trade, higher remittance
    inflows and export demand driven by the on-going recovery of
    the United States (US), and improved investor confidence.
