I look forward to our discussion of a comment at the end of this chapter:
"Inclusive political and economic institutions necessitate some degree of political centralization . . . ." (243)
I wonder if this assertion penetrates fully to the mechanism that is a necessary condition for inclusiveness. As I recall from North's book Violence and the Social Order the institution of the state was examined at its various levels or manifestations - (subnational)local, state or province and national. Perhaps it is, as North seems to argue, the depth and breadth of this federalism that is key to inclusiveness.
