In most places and at most times, the strong have dominated the weak and human freedom has been quashed by force or by customs and norms. Either states have been too weak to protect individuals from these threats or states have been too strong for people to protect themselves from despotism. Liberty emerges only when a delicate and precarious balance is struck between state and society.
Acemoglu, Daron. London: Profile, Their work focuses on the role of institutions in fostering development; specifically economic institutions like secure property rights and political institutions like free and fair elections — structures that commonly develop hand-in-hand. However, throughout the book, the authors write as we would expect geographers to do; frequently contextualising their argument with broader quantitative and qualitative data. Despite an apparent focus on the economic and the political, the social aspects of geography validate their argument throughout. Political accountability means the powerful can no longer rob the weak.

Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos became the wealthiest people in the world because their products made the lives of many people easier; however, Carlos Jesus Slim in Mexico earned his money by exploiting the monopoly in landline telephony. And they change because they allow people to freely choose their professions and the market to guide the country on a prosperous path through its invisible hand. The More Inclusive the Institutions, the Richer the Country According to Acemoglu and Robinson, the history of democracy is the history of revolutions prevented.
It summarizes and popularizes previous research by authors and many other scientists. Based on the statements of the new institutional economics , Robinson and Acemoglu see in political and economic institutions — a set of rules and enforcement mechanisms that exist in society — the main reason for differences in the economic and social development of different states, considering, that other factors geography , climate , genetics , culture , religion , elite ignorance are secondary. The authors contrast two types of institutions: extractive — aimed at excluding the majority of society from the process of political decision-making and income distribution, and inclusive — aimed at including the widest possible strata of society in economic and political life. With the exception of broad strata of society, the political decision-making process, according to the authors, inevitably leads to an attack on the economic rights of all who do not belong to the elite. And the lack of reliable guarantees of property rights and the opportunity to receive income from their enterprises among wide sections of society leads to a halt in economic growth.
The concept of consensually strong states discussed in our last post suggests one possible answer. Instead, it appears that though the state is often an instrument of repression and extraction in the hands of economic or political elites, there are at times important benefits from state centralization as we have also argued in Why Nations Fail , and the state can even be a useful instrument for the disadvantaged in their struggles against the local elites. We are not aware of any comprehensive approach that models or successfully integrates these different ideas. It is meant to stand apart from strong states that are useful because they can provide socially useful public goods and from weak states cannot or will not provide such public goods.
Когда он проходил мимо лифта, дверцы открылись. В кабине стоял какой-то мужчина. Беккер успел заметить лишь очки в железной оправе. Мужчина поднес к носу платок.
- Неверный ключ. Все застыли в ужасе. На экране перед ними высветилось сообщение об ошибке: НЕДОПУСТИМЫЙ ВВОД. ТОЛЬКО В ЦИФРОВОЙ ФОРМЕ - Черт его дери! - взорвался Джабба.
Это данные о сегодняшней производительности. Взгляни на число дешифровок. Бринкерхофф послушно следил за движениями ее пальца. КОЛИЧЕСТВО ДЕШИФРОВОК О Мидж постучала пальцем по этой цифре. - Я так и думала.
Джабба почувствовал, что она медлит с ответом, и снова нахмурился. - Ты так не считаешь. - Отчет безукоризненный.
