    Institutional arrangements (inclusive/exclusive) and historical legacies matter WRM – why nations fail. And above Quick Take gives life to its current relevance.

      Ah, ha! So that’s why California teaches its Hispanic students in Spanish! Not speaking the language of the economically advantaged is an almost insurmountable barrier to upward mobility. But even in countries with a common language, societal stratification appears inevitable.

    Take up the White Man’s burden –

    The savage wars of peace –

    Fill full the mouth of famine

    And bid the sickness cease;

    And when your goal is nearest

    The end for others sought,

    Watch Sloth and heathen Folly

    Bring all your hopes to nought.
