Overview

Scholars from European and US universities analyze institutional change and its political, social, and economic consequences from the perspectives of the relationship between institutions, economic growth, and welfare; the role played by institutions in global business; and the actual process of transition from one institutional framework to another. They offer diverse and often conflicting views. The 14 papers are revised from presentations to an international conference, The Political Economy of Institutional Development: Institutional Design in Periods of Rapid Change, held in Massina, Italy, in September 2000.
