Abstract
  • Understanding the organizational ability of groups in society is essential to understanding political outcomes. Land distribution and ethnic diversity both affect the ability of groups to organize effectively and influence policy. Using a three-article format, I employ a newly released land inequality dataset to show that powerful landowners are able to influence education attainment, that ethnic diversity has a strong, negative cross-national effect on social spending, and large landowners have a moderating effect on economic inequality during industrialization.
