dc.description.abstractJudicial independence is not only a necessary condition for the impartialityof judges, it can also endanger it: judges that are independent could haveincentives to remain uninformed, become lazy or even corrupt. It istherefore often argued that judicial independence and judicialaccountability are competing ends. In this paper, it is, however,hypothesized that they are not necessarily competing ends but can becomplementary means towards achieving impartiality and, in turn, the ruleof law. It is further argued that judicial accountability can increase percapita income through various channels one of which is the reduction ofcorruption. First tests concerning the economic effects of JA are carried outdrawing on the absence of corruption within the judiciary as well as datagathered by the U.S. State Department as proxies. On the basis of 75countries, these proxies are highly significant for explaining differences inper capita income.en_US
