dc.description.abstractThis paper looks at the effect of religious beliefs on economic growth using a Brazilian city-level survey data as opposed to the more popular country-level data, thus separating the effect from different social and historical context. The hypothesis is that certain religious beliefs stimulate people's positive behaviors and hence increase productivity. We also find that religious pluralism is positively correlated with economic growth.
