Why Nations Fail
13,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

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.

Summary and Analysis of Worthy Fights by Leon P...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Oftentimes, society fails to realize the struggles behind closed doors that occur within the boundaries of government. Society fails to see the fights of those who refuse the political ploys of a government position to uphold democracy and ensure the law is upheld. Bill introductions, scandals, resistance, and party politics often stymie within the quagmire of political reform. This was the fight Leon Panetta notes in his memoir titled Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace with Jim Newton published by Penguin Press. Many believe this book is strictly about the Obama Administration´s mistakes or successes in security and foreign policy. It is so much more than that. This book is about the transformation of a man who has lived through one of the most productive eras in the history of the United States as political parties transformed within themselves. From meager beginnings as a child of Italian immigrants to a valiant political soldier in the Civil Rights era to accepting his appointment as the director of the CIA in the Obama Administration, Panetta fought against terrorists to protect the freedoms this country holds dear. Leon Panetta paints a portrait from his perspective as he employed traits he inherited from his Italian-born father and grandfather about his life as a first generation American-born citizen muscling his way through law school. You will also learn about the ROTC during his college years, his military service, and subsequently governmental politics. In his book, Leon Panetta describes and depicts many important points that shaped his future in the world of politics as he had a direct and indirect hand in many of the policies society now takes for granted. 1.
