Boek cover Why Nations Fail van Daron Acemoglu (Hardcover)
The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty
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? ...

Boek cover Waarom sommige landen rijk zijn en andere arm van Daron Acemoglu (Paperback)
Dichter bij de verklaring Dit briljante boek geeft antwoord op de vraag waarom sommige landen rijk zijn en andere arm. Komt dat door culturele verschillen, het klimaat of de geografische omstandigheden? Daron Acemoglu en James Robinson laten overtuigend zien dat het de politieke en economische instituties zijn die het economische succes of falen van een land bepalen. Ze illustreren hun betoog met tal van fascinerende voorbeelden. Een daarvan is Korea, een in wezen homogene natie. In Zuid-Korea legt de overheid verantwoording af aan de burgers en heeft de bevolking volop economische kansen;...

Boek cover Why Nations Fail van Daron Acemoglu (Onbekend)
The Origins of Power, Prosperity and Poverty
Shortlisted for the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award 2012. Why are some nations more prosperous than others? Why Nations Fail sets out to answer this question, with a compelling and elegantly argued new theory: that it is not down to climate, geography or culture, but because of institutions. Drawing on an extraordinary range of contemporary and historical examples, from ancient Rome through the Tudors to modern-day China, leading academics Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson show that to invest and prosper, people need to know that if they work hard, they...

Boek cover Waarom sommige landen rijk zijn en andere arm van Daron Acemoglu (Onbekend)
Het is een van de grote wereldvraagstukken: waarom zijn sommige landen rijk en andere arm? Ligt de verklaring in culturele verschillen, het klimaat of geografische omstandigheden? Of is er een andere oorzaak? Waarom is bijvoorbeeld Botswana een van de snelst groeiende economieën ter wereld en blijven andere Afrikaanse landen, zoals Zimbabwe en Congo, ondergedompeld in geweld en armoede? Daron Acemoglu en James Robinson laten overtuigend zien dat het de politieke en economische instituties zijn die het economische succes of falen van een land bepalen; instituties die innovatie en economische...

Summary of Why Nations Fail by Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson | Includes Analysis Preview: Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty is an examination of the causes of economic inequality. Authors Daron Acemoglu and James A.

How Nations Struggle for Liberty
'As enjoyable as it is thought-provoking' Jared Diamond By the authors of the international bestseller Why Nations Fail, based on decades of research, this powerful new big-picture framework explains how some countries develop towards and provide liberty while others fall to despotism, anarchy or asphyxiating norms - and explains how liberty can thrive despite new threats. Liberty is hardly the 'natural' order of things; usually states have been either too weak to protect individuals or too strong for people to protect themselves from despotism. There is also a happy Western myth that...

States, Societies, and the Fate of Liberty
From the authors of the international bestseller Why Nations Fail, a crucial new big-picture framework that answers the question of how liberty flourishes in some states but falls to authoritarianism or anarchy in others--and explains how it can continue to thrive despite new threats. In Why Nations Fail, Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson argued that countries rise and fall based not on culture, geography, or chance, but on the power of their institutions. In their new book, they build a new theory about liberty and how to achieve it, drawing a wealth of evidence from both current...
