THE WEALTH AND POVERTY OF NATIONS
Why Some Are So Rich and Some So Poor
The answer, as author David S. Landes definitively illustrates, is a complex interplay of cultural mores and historical circumstance. Rich with anecdotal evidence, piercing analysis, and an impressive range of erudition, the book includes an epilogue in which Landes takes account of Asian financial crises and the international tension between overconfidence and reality.
