Over the last twenty-five years Poland has transitioned from a perenially backward, poor, and peripheral country to unexpectedly join the ranks of the world's high income countries. Europe's Growth Champion: Insights from the Economic Rise of Poland is about the lesson's learned from Poland's remarkable experience, the conditions that keep countries poor, and the challenges that countries need to face in order to grow. It defines a new growth model that Poland and its Eastern European peers need to adopt in order to continue to grow and catch up with their Western counterparts.Europe's Growth Champion emphasizes the importance of the fundamental sources of growth- institutions, culture, ideas, and leaders- in economic development. It argues that a shift from an extractive society, where the few rule for the benefit of the few, to an inclusive society, where many rule for the benefit of many, was the key to Poland's success. It asserts that a newly emerged inclusive society will support further convergence of Poland and the rest of Central and Eastern Europe with the West, and help to sustain the region's Golden Age.
