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 and overwhelm 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.

We Shall Not Fail An intimate expert on Sir Winston, his own granddaughter offers today’s business leaders insights on the leadership strategies that made Churchill great.   There is a timelessness to Winston Churchill’s legacy for those who lead, regardless of their profession or title. Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was described as “Churchill in a Yankees cap” for his leadership during 9/11, wrote to Celia Sandys: “Your grandfather was a great source of inspiration and strength to me following the tragic events.” Now, in We Shall Not Fail, Sandys has distilled the essential principles of leadership that guided Churchill throughout his remarkable career and highlights how you can apply them to your own work life. The lessons include: * Nothing works like simple passion for excellence * Encourage a culture where what counts is thinking, trying, and testing. * Champion innovators and protect them from bureaucrats. * Don’t allow different standards for top executives and entry-level workers.   Drawing on vivid stories, letters, and speeches, Sandys reveals what we must learn if we are to lead in today’s tough business environment by studying the actions and words of a man who is still regarded as an inspirational colossus. “He was, in that overused but inevitable phrase, ‘larger than life.’ A leader. A man among men.”—Margaret Thatcher   “One of the most progressive leaders the world has ever seen.”—Nelson Mandela About author(s) Celia Sandys is the granddaughter of Winston Churchill. She is the author of The Young Churchill and Churchill: Wanted Dead or Alive.
