Abstract: For most of human history, technological change and institutional innovation created ever widening gaps in standards of living between the most and least fortunate regions of the world. Recently, many lagging regions have begun to copy the best technological and institutional practices. For many people, the gaps are now shrinking. The remaining challenge is to help people trapped in regions with no effective state or with a repressive state that continues to impede the process of catching up.
