Insightful

the book is really informative and gives much greater insights about the existing inequality and poverty in the world by taking us going through the history of each culture and society.

A good Read

The authors of this book take an entirely different approach. Their arguments are primarily ones which are based on economical and political institutions . They firmly reject that there are arguments that the reasons nations fail are due to geographic, cultural or ignorance. But they do recognize that all have one thing in common and that the rule is by a narrow elite whose main focus is on maintaining and/or expanding their own interests at the expense of the rest of the population which they govern.

Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty

This book, by Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson, gives its version of answers on why some nations fail while other rise and become wealthy and prosperous. The thesis made by the authors is very direct and simple, nations with inclusive political and economic institutions become successful and flourish while nations with extractive political and economic institution fail and take its members into hardship. Highly recommended.
