Contrary to conventional wisdom, countries that ignite a process of rapid economic growth almost always do so while lacking what experts say are the essential preconditions for development, such as good infrastructure and institutions.

Rezensionen
"This powerful book brings encouraging news to developing countries. A nation does not have to be developed to achieve economic growth: Witness Israel's cultivation of the Negev Desert and Mali's vibrant mango industry. History gives striking examples of take off into sustained growth with little education and not much infrastructure either." - Edmund Phelps, Nobel Laureate in Economics
