Abstract: "The constitutional foundations of development can refer to a given political framework within which economic growth or social progress is to be engineered, or it can concern itself with the manner of composition and constraints which, through building up the rules of interaction among individuals in society, can enhance the potential for greater well-being. The first interpretation, as taken up in the Orthodox Development literature, refers implicitly to a model of the State. The second, examined here, set out how systems of collective action can be designed and conditioned to enable individuals in association with others to realize each their adaptive potentials."
