Institutionen als Triebfedern politischer Entwicklungspfade: Why Nations Fail von Daron Acemoğlu und James A. Robinson

Chapter

Zusammenfassung

In Why Nations Fail – The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty evaluieren der Wirtschaftswissenschaftler Daron Acemoğlu und der Politikwissenschaftler James Robinson das Entwicklungsprofil politischer Gemeinwesen und identifizieren dabei die institutionelle Machtverteilung als Ursache für ihren Aufstieg und Fall. Inklusive Institutionen ermöglichten eine breite politische und ökonomische Teilhabe, während extraktive Institutionen auf wirtschaftlicher Ebene Wohlstand in den Händen Weniger konzentrierten und politisch dysfunktionale Strukturen ausbildeten. Obgleich die grundsätzliche Methodik der Studie, eine fehlende Operationalisierung zentraler Begriffe und die monokausale Herangehensweise an die Thematik kritisiert wurden, hat das Werk doch eine rege wissenschaftliche Debatte über den Wirkungsgrad von Institutionen ausgelöst.
