“Institutions” Learning Path

For a few generations Institutions have been the dominant explanation for explaining the different levels of development between societies.

I recommend that you read these book summaries in the following order:

  1. “Why Nations Fail” by Acemoglu and Robinson
  2. “Violence and Social Orders” by North, Wallis and Weingast
  3. “The Dictator’s Handbook” by Mesquita and Smith

If there is a book that you find particularly interesting, please support the author by buying the book.
