Three aspects of development -- per-capita income, state capabilities, and (the absence of) political violence -- are correlated at the country level. The lecture discussed a framework for explaining such connections and discussed the policy implications behind these development patterns. It will also relate the work to recent debates about the role of institutions and policies generated using Randomized Control Trials (RCTs).
