Europe's Growth Champion

Insights from the Economic Rise of Poland

Marcin Piatkowski

  • A pioneering case study of Poland's economic success
  • Uses a specific country study to inform broader arguments on development and growth
  • Provides a new take on the role of institutions, culture, ideas, and leaders in development
  • Adds to the inventory of successful growth models with the new "Warsaw Consensus" model
  • Contributes to economic theory on the role of institutions through a new extension to the Acemoglu-Johnson-Robinson framework that highlights the conditions needed for countries to shift from the extractive to the inclusive society equilibrium, and vice versa
