Daron Acemoglu is blogging!

Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson have written a book called Why Nations Fail. He discusses the upcoming book in the interview here. The book is sure to become a bestseller when it releases on 20 Mar 2012.

The duo have started blogging bringing some key examples/insights from their work.

There have already been two superb posts on why Uzbekistan fails as a nation. It has high education enrollment and literacy rates. But fails as it has some really sad extractive institutions.

Great reading and more to come…
