Why Nations Fail


Download: Audio, Slides

Speaker(s): Professor James Robinson
Chair: Professor Timothy Besley

Recorded on 8 June 2011 in Old Theatre, Old Building.

Countries grow economically if they can build inclusive economic institutions. They stagnate if they have exclusive institutions. It is political conflicts and how they are resolved which determines the path a society follows. James Robinson is David Florence Professor of Government at Harvard University.
