My favorite Quotes from “Why Nations Fail”:

“Economic institutions shape economic incentives: the incentives to become educated, to save and invest, to innovate and adopt new technologies, and so on. It is the political process that determines what economic institutions people live under, and it is the political institutions that determine how this process works.”

“Politics is the process by which a society chooses the rules that will govern it.”
