Institutii inclusive si extractive în spatiul românesc medieval


  • Adrian DUMITRU Facultatea de Stiinte Politice, SNSPA, Bucuresti


In this article I aim to do a analysis of the institutions of the feudal Romanian principalities using the framework of inclusive and extractive institutions laid down by Acemoglu, Robinson and Johnson, which I have supplemented with a third type of institutions – non-inclusive ones. I argue that Romanian feudalism was rather similar to the one employed in the western European realms, unlike the current scientific and historical consensus and that the prevalence and consolidation of several extractive institutions, both internal and external has led to continued stagnation, political and economic, of the Romanian medieval territories.
