What People are Saying About This

Barry Eichengreen

To paraphrase Winston Churchill, Europe is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Its economy is neither a smashing success nor a basket case but, like any economy, something in between. This collection of careful studies combining economic theory with institutional analysis goes a long way toward unwrapping the riddle.

Peter Howitt

In this collection some of the most innovative economists in the profession shed new light on why continental Europe has lost its dynamism. A must read for anyone seriously interested in the complex interrelations among institutions, culture, and economic growth.
