Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty by Daron Acemogl

Why Nations Fail joins economics with contemporary social politics to provide a fresh analysis of global wealth distribution and ways to eradicate poverty. On the basis of fifteen years of original research, Acemoglu and Robinson have marshaled 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 that emphasizes practical lessons in hopes that nations entrapped in poverty and injustice could be set on the road to prosperity.
