Persistence of Political/Cultural Variables

It's often important to have a sense of the persistence of political/cultural variables - such as democracy, authoritarianism, concern for human rights, a concern for animal welfare, or norms conducive to scientific progress or free markets. This can inform our predictions of what the future will be like and our views on the importance of changing those variables.

See also academic work on cultural persistence (e.g. Giuliano and Nunn, 2016; Kelly, 2019).
