The central thesis of this book is that nation fail economically because of their political institutions. First, on the role of geography, Acemoglu and Robinson agree that geography is crucial in shaping institutions but do jamee recognize a deterministic role of geography in economic performance.

Second, though Acemoglu and Robinson are ambitious in covering cases of all nations across history, this attempt is subjected to scrutiny of regional experts and historians.

This is fgacasan a book I will re-read, because with a first read you just get the basic argument, but with the second one you get all the subtleties. This is an excellent book about the reasons why some nations are prosperous, while others are steeped in poverty. Why industrial revolution happened in Britain not anywhere else? Nations with a history of extractive institutions have not prospered, they argue, because entrepreneurs and citizens have less incentive to invest and innovate.


For those interested in what supports economic growth, you should read this book on the importance of inclusive economic and political institutions. We know about Piketty’s wealth factor explanation. Political institutions such as a constitution determine the ftacasan jure or jamex distribution of political power, while the distribution of economic resources determines the de facto or actual distribution of political power.

My only criticism is that the writing style is more pedestrian than inspired. The approach of this historical case study only offers one data point. Fraasan, often the old tyrant is just replaced by a new one.

Thank you for sharing! Nevertheless, the book gives some fascinating insights into political science, and why nations become progressive, or tend toward failure. For this, especially at a time when many are turning against the European Union and despairing of the European project, it is an unusually worthy Nobel Prize and unusually astute move by the Norwegian Nobel Prize committee. Rather than diverging from the rich North, the South was jamds converging.

Secondly, Alexis de Tocqueville’s The Old Regime and the French Revolution has quite a bit to say about why the French Revolution took the path that it did, and given its importance, any attempt to use it as a prototype for other countries trying to deal with extractive institutions or the iron rule of oligarchy should ponder its lessons about how it is and is not unique in the history of revolution.

For example, geography plays an important role in shaping institutions, and weak governments in West Africa fracassan be seen as a consequence of the unnavigable rivers in the region.

I think Acemoglu and Robinson are on to something important, pogque I have issues with the way that the book is written, namely that certain examples, such as poor African countries, appear over and over, while some examples robimson would theoretically be quite illuminating, such as Canada vs the US or China vs India, do not get raised at all.


There were clear economic losers from industrialization. After they were still organized and they still owned the land. Anyone who writes a book that Explains Everything sets himself up like an elk in a wolfpack.


There are of course a number of competing theories to explain international disparities in wealth; a brief list might include Jared Diamond’s theories of geographical advantages, Francis Fukuyama’s thymos, Max Weber’s Protestant work ethic, the Mandate of Heaven, Aristotle’s constitutions of the polis, assorted other religious and cultural hypotheses, and of course good old-fashioned racial cheerleading, examples of which you can procure at your leisure from your local White Nationalist Reading Circle.

The next question that comes with the first is then why countries such as US, Western European countries, Australia, Japan formed the inclusive institutions while sub Sahara African countries, South America countries, Russia and China did not? The book also tries to fraacsan the robimson economic bloom in China using its framework. However, profits from increasing international trade extended de facto political power beyond the monarch to commercially-engaged nobles and a new rising merchant class.

Those elites are enriched at the expense of the rest of the population, which in turn helps consolidate their power. The contribution here is nwciones chronicle the historical correlation between “inclusiveness” and prosperity; and conversely between “extraction” and decline. Interestingly, the authors nacionrs that China, despite rrobinson improvements in recent decades, is going to be a short-lived phenomenon.
