    Abstract The volume Institutional Change and Economic Development fills some important gaps in our understanding of the relationship between institutional changes and economic development. It does so by developing new discourses on the ‘technology of institution building’ and by providing detailed case studies—historical and more recent—of institution building. It is argued that functional multiplicity, the importance of informal institutions, unintended consequences, and intended ‘perversion’ of institutions all imply that the orthodox recipe of importing ‘best practice’ formal institutions doesnt work. While denying the existence of universal formulas, the volumed stills some general principles of institutions building from theoretical explorations and case studies.
