Overview

This volume demonstrates that advanced economic theory provides tools which may usefully be applied to an understanding of the operation of institutions, in the case with particular and significant implications for the problems faced by poor agrarian economies. While many economist accept the institutions are of fundamental importance, this recognition has until recently rarely been matched by the application of rigorous analysis of their formation and behavior, tending rather to confine itself to descriptive studies.
