520    This dissertation produces a new set of orthogonal 
       governance measures based on expert assessment data. 
       Chapter 1 constructs the measures using a factor model. 
       Chapter 2 applies the measures to study comparative 
       economic development. Chapter 3 conducts a number of 
       robustness checks on results from the first two chapters. 
       Chapter 4 uses Monte Carlo experiments to assess potential
       inaccuracy in my governance measures caused by the 
       application of the maximum-likelihood estimator to 
       polytomous data
