“Economic institutions shape economic incentives: the incentives to become educated, to save and invest, to innovate and adopt new technologies, and so on. It is the political process that determines what economic institutions people live under, and it is the political institutions that determine how this process works.”
Daron Acemoğlu, Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty

“Inclusive economic and political institutions do not emerge by themselves. They are often the outcome of significant conflict between elites resisting economic growth and political change and those wishing to limit the economic and political power of existing elites.”
Daron Acemoğlu, Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty

“As we will show, poor countries are poor because those who have power make choices that create poverty.”
Daron Acemoğlu, Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty
