How did the West¿Europe, Canada, and the United States¿escape from immemorial poverty into sustained economic growth and material well-being when other societies remained trapped in an endless cycle of birth, hunger, hardship, and death? In this elegant synthesis of economic history, two scholars argue that it is the political pluralism and the flexibility of the West's institutions¿not corporate organization and mass production technology¿that explain its unparalleled wealth.
