Countries rarely succeed in the absence of state institutions that can establish and enforce the “rules of engagement”, collect revenues, and provide public goods and services. It is likely that those in which institutions are strong, ensure the efficient allocation of resources, allow investment in higher yield activities, reduce uncertainty and friction, favor the convergence between private and social benefits, and facilitate the coordination of economics drivers. On the contrary, those in which public institutions are weak, may have several economic problems such as lower investment, slower growth in productivity, lower per capita income, and lower GDP growth.
