Summary
"In Power and Prosperity, which he completed just before his death last year, Olson takes on the broadest questions of his career: Why do some economies perform spectacularly, providing incredible wealth and prosperity, while others fail miserably? How do different forms of government either hinder or promote economic growth? And, more specifically: With the collapse of the Soviet system, why have markets not flourished?"--Jacket
