Why nations fail is a topic which has been dissected in many books in recent years. This book examines each theory under the lens of history and proceeds to propose a new one. Writers duo have argued that institutional strength determines the longevity of state.Case is well argued and has lot of good examples. He has examined rise of China amongst emerging economies and has put some stratling predictions.Wish that he had done for India too.Suming up, great work.
The books is exemplary in providing an insight on how similar countries have a different growth trajectory. The works are not merely based on theories but are supplemented by thorough observations and readings. It really demystifies the incorrect notions of growth and brings out real parameters of development. Worth reading!!!!!!!!!
