A strong state that adopts self-serving, divisive, or simply Global institutions and economic development 33 misconceived economic policies and/or institutions can generate economic disasters. The last twenty-five years of indifferent, poorly distributed economic growth in most African nations, in a large number of Latin American countries and in the non-defence sectors of the former Soviet Union underscore this point. A non-activist government would have been preferable to a strong, captive government promoting bad policies.

The next three sections draw the implications of these lessons for global economic institutions. We start by sketching the history and characteristics of the post-Bretton Woods global system. We then point out the severe limits that the post-Bretton Woods global system places on the economic autonomy of national states and examine the remaining broad policy options for developing-country government responses. 1 Our discussion of these issues is strongly influenced by East Asian experience in national development and by the Korean financial crisis of 1997–8 and its aftermath.

The critical importance of social capital for developing countries has been confirmed by Temple and Johnson (1998). Social capital generates a synergistic relation between the state and civil society Global institutions and economic development 25 (Evans 1997) in which active states and mobilised communities enhance each others’ effectiveness.
