Comments on McCloskey and Weingast

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Economic growth is an aspect of social change which cannot be explained by economic theory alone. McCloskey invokes ‘ideas’ but ideas only matter as embodied in institutions. Weingast makes this points but his institutions are too economistic. Only institutionalised self-emergence can explain massive, relentless and automatic change.
