520    "Little else is required to carry a state to the highest 
       degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism, but peace, 
       easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice; all
       the rest being brought about by the natural course of 
       things." So wrote Adam Smith a quarter of a millennium 
       ago. Using the tools of modern political economics and 
       combining economic theory with a bird's-eye view of the 
       data, this book reinterprets Smith's pillars of prosperity
       to explain the existence of development clusters--places 
       that tend to combine effective state institutions, the 
       absence of political violence, and high per-capita 
       incomes. To achieve peace, the authors stress the 
       avoidance of repressive government and civil conflict. 
       Easy taxes, they argue, refers not to low taxes, but a tax
       system with widespread compliance that collects taxes at a
       reasonable cost from a broad base, like income. And a 
       tolerable administration of justice is about legal 
       infrastructure that can support the enforcement of 
       contracts and property rights in line with the rule of 
       law. The authors show that countries tend to enjoy all 
       three pillars of prosperity when they have evolved 
       cohesive political institutions that promote common 
       interests, guaranteeing the provision of public goods. In 
       line with much historical research, international conflict
       has also been an important force behind effective states 
       by fostering common interests. The absence of common 
       interests and/or cohesive political institutions can 
       explain the existence of very different development 
       clusters in fragile states that are plagued by poverty, 
       violence, and weak state capacity.--Provided by publisher.
