What was learned in the 1990s is not only that sound policies do not necessarily engender the institutions of a modern economy—that institutions are not entirely endogenous—but also that institutions can prevent the adoption of growthoriented policies or offset their impact.

More important, they tended to be unrelated to a more coherent reform strategy and thus over time many lost their steam. An important general lesson is that technocratic responses to the governance crisis work only in very auspicious settings—where there is com- 24 mitted leadership, a broad-based coalition in support of reform, and sufficient capacity to carry the reform process forward. Clearly, these conditions exist in only a few developing countries,and rarely in those that most need governance reform.

There may be situations in which a country needs to address many constraints at once, as during the transition of Eastern European countries. These situations are rare, however. In most cases, countries can deal with constraints sequentially, a few at a time. Success in addressing one or a set of constraints makes it easier to deal with the others, and may help establish virtuous circles. 4.
