Abstract

The role that institutions played in Québec’s economic growth is rarely recognized as much it ought. Yet, the outcome of the Quiet Revolution for the institutions can help explain why this period would have such disappointing outcomes. These institutions (or voluntary associations) produce what economists and sociologists call “social capital.”
