After more than two decades of widespread hardship for most nations, what are the different paths available for them to resume steady growth and welfare? Will they actually succeed in building new growth models that meet the challenges of the present phase of internationalisation? This book attempts to answer these questions by analysing different perspectives and discussing the conditions for new national growth trajectories to emerge.

Published in 1778, The Wealth of Nations was the first book on economics to catch the public's attention. It provides a recipe for national prosperity that has not been bettered since, based on small government and the freedom of citizens to act in their best interests. It reassuringly assumes no knowledge of its subject, and over 200 years on still provides valuable lessons on the fundamentals of economics. This deluxe, selected edition is a stylish keepsake from the Capstone Classics series. This edition includes: An abridged selection of all 5 books for the contemporary reader An original commentary offering new research and analysis by classic literature guru Tom Butler-Bowdon A biography and chronology of Adam Smith's life and the events surrounding the original publication of the work Today, The Wealth of Nations is still essential reading for any business or self-development library, reminding us that it is the ingenuity and drive of people, not governments, that remains the source of personal, national and global prosperity.

The book deals with the concept of poverty, its causes and cures. The rich ordinarily blaming the poor that latter remain poor, because of their being lazy and the poor feeling that their poverty, arises from the exploitation by the rich, both views have been attempted to be dismantled. The dichotomy of poverty and the affluence has not been an age old phenomenon. The inequalities, in the non industrial ages, were far from being distinct, except an extremely thin layer of the royalty and the feudal. With prosperity of few nations, arising from industrial revolution, from the middle of the 1700s and the increased naval power, of a few nations, made the difference between the rich and poor regions and between the countries sharp. As money begets money, the economic development, too followed the same path. The author examined how the poverty, got accentuated by migration of labour and the rich engaging them, on security of contract basis, for longer periods, either paying measly compensation or with no wages. They also restricted their mobility to leverage, from their cheap labour. This is reflected even in the new millennium, in the form of denial of industrial democracy, by some gigantic corporations, to annihilate the bargaining power of the labour. The book also mentions how disengaged nature of the democratic politics of the poor in the developed world, kept them poorer and wanting in confidence. Remedial measures have also been discussed, in this study, which, as stressed by the author, need to be continent specific, rather than one cloth size fits all, approach of the multilateral Institutions. The book has not examined and researched poverty as one blanket entity but researched poverty at multi-layered level and at each level the author got to the bottom of the issue and provided unique solutions. The study suggests need for a gesture of benevolence, of the developed world, keeping in mind the downsides that resulted from colonization. The book goes into the question of emergence of avoidance of practical education, science and engineering education, lack of interest in academic rigour, in several industrial countries, in the recent years, which could be heavily challenging, for future generations. The book is unique, in its dealing with remedial measures, to which the book has considerably dedicated.

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.
