Why Nations Fail may be the best book I have read this year, so I was absolutely delighted when both of the authors agreed to speak to me on my podcast! This is the first of these interviews, with Professor James A. Robinson. The main idea that I took from the book was that across history we can see that freedom – both political and economic – and inclusive institutions are precursors for growth, peace, and prosperity!
An economist and political scientist, James Robinson has conducted influential research in the field of political and economic development and the relationships between political power and institutions and prosperity. His work explores the underlying causes of economic and political divergence both historically and today and uses both the mathematical and quantitative methods of economics along with the case study, qualitative and fieldwork methodologies used in other social sciences.
