dc.description.abstract In this paper we complete and expand previous studies on how state capacity affects the economy by explicitly modeling the interaction between firms and state capacity. We model state capacity on a network framework where the provision of public goods and services boost productive decisions of entrepreneurs located in each municipality. This static model is the first that explicitly model the interaction between productive agents and state in a network framework of municipalities. By estimation of the reduced form model, we obtain a large and positive effect of state capacity on several indicators of productive development on the rm level like the number of formal firms, percentage of non-microfirms, median lifecycle of the rm and the median size of the firms. en
