North, Rodrk, Acemoglu and Fujiyama on Governance

May 9, 2008

Rodrik pointed to this discussion in his post sometime back.

The 4 authors discuss about governance and its role in growth. It is a treat to read any of these three names -North, Acemoglu and Rodrik ( I haven’t read Fujiyama before). And to read their views at one place is simply wonderful.

A must read.
