About the Author

Mancur Olson (1932-1998) was the Chair and Principal Investigator of the Center on Institutional Reform and the Informal Sector (IRIS) and Distinguished Professor of Economics at the University of Maryland. His books The Logic of Collective Action and The Rise and Decline of Nations have been translated into nine languages.


"Power and Prosperity is an important book, written with clarity and verve. It is a great misfortune that Mancur Olson is not here to respond to the debates that it will surely provoke." The Wall Street Journal
