      Both de jure and de facto political power distribution affect the economic institutions in how production is carried out, as well as how the political institutions will be shaped in the next period. There is no actual demand for the capital, because nobody has an incentive to invest in projects. While there are many factors to consider, two stand out. Obviously not. How Do Economies Grow? Unfortunately for many developing countries foreign aid is seen as a step forward to development but in the real sense development is totally dependent on the countries in the North.

      This type of slow, grinding failure leaves many countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Latin America with living standards far, far below those in the West. However, according to Modernization theorycausation can also go the other way around—improvement of political institutions can also be a result of economic modernization. Then the question is why it is so unsafe to invest in developing countries. In most recipient countries, aid has propped up autocratic regimes, a state of the winner takes all, incompetent governments and a violent opposition movement, for example the last general election witnessed in Zimbabwe where many westerners funded and supported Tvasangirai rather than Mugabe which resulted in violence between the opposition and the ruling party. Acemoglu and Robinson simply take geography as an original factor a country is endowed with; how it affects a country's development still depends on institutions.

      Sachs also questions Acemoglu and Robinson's assumption that authoritarian regimes cannot motivate economic growth. In some parts of the book, the authors attribute the failure of the states like AfghanistanHaiti and Nepal to the lack of a strong central government that imposes rule and order. A recent example is Albania. For example, economic reform programmes often advocate increased trade liberalization that could in the short run harm domestic producers. Why are some countries now converging, while others continue to diverge?
