The relationship between tightness/looseness and gross domestic product (GDP) will exhibit a curvilinear relationship, such that very tight and very loose nations have worse outcomes relative to nations intermediate on tightness-looseness
GDP per capita was found to be lower in both very tight and very loose nations. Additionally, relative to the linear model (F=.004, p=.95, R-Squared=.0001), the quadratic model was a significant improvement (F-change=7.58, p=.01, R-Squared change=.21).
