Descripción Crown Business, 2013. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Should be required reading for politicians and anyone concerned with economic development." --Jared Diamond, New York Review of Books ".bracing, garrulous, wildly ambitious and ultimately hopeful. It may, in fact, be a bit of a masterpiece." -- Washington Post "For economics and political-science students, surely, but also for the general reader who will appreciate how gracefully the authors wear their erudition." -- Kirkus Reviews "Provocative stuff; backed by lots of brain power." -- Library Journal "This is an intellectually rich book that develops an important thesis with verve. It should be widely read." -- Financial Times "A probing . . . look at the roots of political and economic success . . . large and ambitious new book." -- The Daily " Why Nations Fail is a splendid piece of scholarship and a showcase of economic rigor." --The Wall Street Journal "Ranging from imperial Rome to modern Botswana, this book will change the way people think about the wealth and poverty of nations.as ambitious as Jared Diamond''s Guns, Germs, and Steel ." -- Bloomberg BusinessWeek "The main strength of this book is beyond the power of summary: it is packed, from beginning to end, with historical vignettes that are both erudite and fascinating. As Jared Diamond says on the cover: ''It will make you a spellbinder at parties.'' But it will also make you think." --The Observer (UK) "A brilliant book." -- Bloomberg ( Jonathan Alter) " Why Nations Fail is a wildly ambitious work that hopscotches through history and around the world to answer the very big question of why some countries get rich and others don''t." -- The New York Times ( Chrystia Freeland) " Why Nations Fail is a truly awesome book. Acemoglu and Robinson tackle one of the most important problems in the social sciences--a question that has bedeviled leading thinkers for centuries--and offer an answer that is brilliant in its simplicity and power. A wonderfully readable mix of history, political science, and economics, this book will change the way we think about economic development. Why Nations Fail is a must-read book." --Steven Levitt, coauthor of Freakonomics "You will have three reasons to love this book. It''s about national income differences within the modern world, perhaps the biggest problem facing the world today. It''s peppered with fascinating stories that will make you a spellbinder at cocktail parties--such as why Botswana is prospering and Sierra Leone isn''t. And it''s a great read. Like me, you may succumb to reading it in one go, and then you may come back to it again and again." --Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the bestsellers Guns, Germs, and Steel and Collapse "A compelling and highly readable book. And [the] conclusion is a cheering one: the authoritarian ''extractive'' institutions like the ones that drive growth in China today are bound to run out of steam. Without the inclusive institutions that first evolved in the West, sustainable growth is impossible, because only a truly free society can foster genuine innovation and the creative destruction that is its corollary." --Niall Ferguson, author of The Ascent of Money "Some time ago a little-known Scottish philosopher wrote a book on what makes nations succeed and what makes them fail. The Wealth of Nations is still being read today. With the same perspicacity and with the same broad historical perspective, Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson have retackled this same question for our own times. Two centuries from now our great-great- . . . -great grandchildren will be, similarly, reading Why Nations Fail." --George Akerlof, Nobel laureate in economics, 2001 " Why Nations Fail is so good in so many ways that I despair of listing them all. It explains huge swathes of human history. It is equally at home in Asia, Africa and the Americas. It is fair to left and right and every flavor in between. It doesn''t pull punches.

Descripción Crown Business, United States, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 203 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Brilliant and engagingly written, Why Nations Fail answers the question that has stumped the experts for centuries: Why are some nations rich and others poor, divided by wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine? Is it culture, the weather, geography? Perhaps ignorance of what the right policies are? Simply, no. None of these factors is either definitive or destiny. Otherwise, how to explain why Botswana has become one of the fastest growing countries in the world, while other African nations, such as Zimbabwe, the Congo, and Sierra Leone, are mired in poverty and violence? Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson conclusively show that it is man-made political and economic institutions that underlie economic success (or lack of it). Korea, to take just one of their fascinating examples, is a remarkably homogeneous nation, yet the people of North Korea are among the poorest on earth while their brothers and sisters in South Korea are among the richest. The south forged a society that created incentives, rewarded innovation, and allowed everyone to participate in economic opportunities. The economic success thus spurred was sustained because the government became accountable and responsive to citizens and the great mass of people. Sadly, the people of the north have endured decades of famine, political repression, and very different economic institutions with no end in sight. The differences between the Koreas is due to the politics that created these completely different institutional trajectories. Based on fifteen years of original research Acemoglu and Robinson marshall extraordinary historical evidence from the Roman Empire, the Mayan city-states, medieval Venice, the Soviet Union, Latin America, England, Europe, the United States, and Africa to build a new theory of political economy with great relevance for the big questions of today, including: - China has built an authoritarian growth machine. Will it continue to grow at such high speed andoverwhelm the West? - Are America s best days behind it? Are we moving from a virtuous circle in which efforts by elites to aggrandize power are resisted to a vicious one that enriches and empowers a small minority? - What is the most effective way to help move billions of people from the rut of poverty to prosperity? More philanthropy from the wealthy nations of the West? Or learning the hard-won lessons of Acemoglu and Robinson s breakthrough ideas on the interplay between inclusive political and economic institutions? Why Nations Fail will change the way you look at and understand the world. Nº de ref. de la librería LIB9780307719225
